The Corriere dello Sport and Tuttosport are both suggesting that Wesley Sneijder would ponder a switch from Inter to city rivals Milan.
The Dutchman is expected to be sold by the Nerazzurri in the summer as they start another new era at San Siro.
The 27-year-old was linked with a transfer to Manchester United last summer and the Premiership giants may still be interested in the playmaker.
However, according to stories in the peninsula on Friday, the midfielder is thinking about a move to Milan – given that he and his wife are settled in the city.
Sneijder is also said to be good friends with Milan midfielders Kevin-Prince Boateng and Mark Van Bommel.
The Diavolo have yet to make a move for Sneijder though and it is unclear whether Inter chief Massimo Moratti would OK such a switch.
Moratti still has some regrets over his decision to release Andrea Pirlo and Clarance Seedorf to their city rivals in the past.
Sneijder has had a problematic campaign with the Beneamata this term, scoring just one goal in 15 Serie A appearances during a season affected by injury.
Inter netted Sneijder in the summer of 2009 after paying Real Madrid a reported fee of €15m.
