Shakhtar Donetsk boss Mircea Lucescu has remained coy on reports that midfielder Fernando will join Inter this summer.
Reports in the Ukrainian and Italian Press have claimed that the Brazilian will leave the Donbass Arena and go to the Nerazzurri.
However, the Romanian Coach has insisted that, as far as he’s aware, it is not the case.
“It’s not like me to comment on things like this,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“But if Inter really were interested in the player, then they should take it up with Shakhtar.
“But I certainly would not want to see him leave because he is a talented player.
“This year he hasn’t played quite as well, but I know next year he will explode.”
