Maicon, Sneijder and Eto'o staying

Douglas Maicon, Wesley Sneijder and Samuel Eto'o will all remain at Inter, owner Massimo Moratti insists.

All three players have been associated with summer exits, but, after losing his Coach Leonardo, Moratti maintains he won't be losing his three key players.

"I have spoken to all three of them and all told me that they want to continue with us," Moratti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"We are in the transfer window and we are focused on everything and everyone, including which players to buy."

Maicon has been paired with a switch to Real Madrid, while Chelsea and Manchester United are apparently chasing Sneijder.

Doubts were raised over Eto'o's future last week when he admitted that he is considering offers from a number of English clubs.

Meanwhile, Moratti maintains that the Nerazzurri were never in the running to sign Genoa's Stephan El Shaarawy.

"He is a great player, but we are well covered in his role," Moratti insisted.

The Italian Under-19 international, who spent this season on loan at Padova in Serie B, is bound for city rivals Milan.
