Milito happy with Tevez or Lavezzi

Diego Milito says he'd be happy to play alongside Carlos Tevez or Ezequiel Lavezzi at Inter in the new campaign.

Both men have been paired with the Nerazzurri as possible replacements for Samuel Eto'o, who seems to be on the verge of a switch to Anzhi.

"Let's wait and see what happens," the striker told Sky Sport Italia. "Eto'o would be a massive loss, but I remain optimistic because we have a strong squad.

"If he goes then hopefully another great champion will arrive.

"I know Tevez well, we've played alongside each other on numerous occasions with Argentina and he's a champion.

"Lavezzi is a great player too."

Tevez is currently at Manchester City, while Lavezzi plays his football in Italy with Napoli.

Milito's future has also been brought into doubt this summer, but he maintains that he is going nowhere.

"I'm staying here at Inter," the South American added. "I still have three years to run on my contract and I'm happy.

"I heard the Genoa rumour and although you never know what can happen in football, I'm an Inter player.

"I hope to have a great season alongside my teammates."
