Cristian Chivu will start looking for a potential new club in January should Inter opt against renewing his agreement.
The Romanian is out of contract in the summer of 2012 and he has been linked with a Christmas switch, thus allowing the Nerazzurri not to lose him on a Bosman in June.
“We haven’t spoken to anyone yet,” agent Victor Becali told calciomercato.it. “We’ll wait for Inter until December and then, if necessary, we’ll start looking around.
“Up until now, Inter haven’t tabled any kind of contract extension offer to the player.
“The only thing that is presently certain is that Chivu will not be moving during the season. He’ll stay with Inter until June.”
The former Ajax man, who has been mainly used as a left-back rather than in his preferred centre-back role at San Siro, has been paired with a move to Napoli.
