Inter President Massimo Moratti admits that he is worried Wesley Sneijder could leave. He also rubbished reports of contact with Marcelo Bielsa.
Sneijder's future at San Siro is no longer assured after he opened the door to an exit following links with Chelsea and Manchester United.
"I love Inter with all my heart," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "But only God will decide where my future lies."
Moratti, speaking outside his Milan offices this morning, stated: "It was sad to hear those comments."
Sneijder joined the Nerazzurri giants in the summer of 2009 from Real Madrid at the specific request of then boss Jose Mourinho.
He marked his first season in Italy by winning the Scudetto, Champions League and Coppa Italia. He also reached the World Cup Final with Holland that same term.
This time around, he's lifted the Italian Cup, the Italian Super Cup and the Club World Cup.
Meanwhile, Moratti also rejected today's front-page lead on the Gazzetta that he spoke with Bielsa at the weekend.
The paper suggests that the Inter owner telephoned the Argentine tactician, who recently resigned as Chile Coach, to ask whether he would be willing to boss Inter at some stage in the future.
"There has been no contact with Bielsa, I deny everything," Moratti continued. "Leonardo is an excellent Coach."
