Thiago Motta staying at Inter

Italian international Thiago Motta is unlikely to leave Inter this summer, one of his agents has stated.

Motta's future at San Siro has been cast into doubt amidst apparent interest from Roma, Zenit and Arsenal.

"I think he'll stay at Inter," Simone Canovi, who looks after the player along with father Dario Canovi, told TMW.

"He wants to remain, he still has two years left on his contract and he's never asked to be sold by the club.

"You also have to consider that new Coach Gian Piero Gasperini rates the player highly and they've worked well together."

The Brazilian born enforcer played under Gasperini at Genoa during the 2008-09 campaign before his switch to Inter.

Gasperini, who replaces Leonardo, was presented to the media by Inter yesterday.
