Inter have reportedly asked Julio Cesar to cut short his summer break so that he can be available for the Italian Super Cup Final.
The Brazilian is currently on holiday after his involvement in this summer's Copa America campaign.
The Nerazzurri have a goalkeeping headache to resolve following the events of the last week which have seen Emiliano Viviano and Luca Castellazzi pick up injuries.
Viviano, who was expected to be sold to Genoa after the Super Cup tie against Milan on August 6, has been ruled out for six months with a knee problem.
Castellazzi, meanwhile, suffered concussion in the friendly against Galatasaray and the club are remaining cautious about his availability.
Should Castellazzi suffer any complications then Inter would be short of custodian options for the Beijing tie next month, hence the alleged call to Cesar.
