Massimo Moratti is “curious” to see how Inter fare against Juventus today and said a Chinese bid for the club was “just a rumour.”

“It is an important game today and we are all curious to see what level the team is at,” President Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
“Juve are a traditional opponent who we shared much of our football history with, both positively and negatively.
“Walter Mazzarri is our best buy, as he is certainly a reference point and will continue to be that for the new Inter. He is a hard worker.”
Moratti had been expected to sell the majority Inter shares to Indonesian magnate Erick Thohir, but it was reported the delay was down to a new offer from China.
“That’s just a rumour without great consistency. Am I still convinced I want to sell? I wasn’t convinced before, nor am I convinced against it. This is an opportunity and will only go through if the conditions are right.”
