Sampdoria President Riccardo Garrone believes that as of now there aren't the conditions for Antonio Cassano to move to Inter, but things could change.
Garrone has asked that Cassano's contract be rescinded after a falling out in October. The FIGC's Court of Arbitration will make its decision a week today.
Asked about reports linking Inter with a bid for Cassano, he said: "Right now there aren't the right conditions. I believe that Massimo Moratti and his people are watching.
"They would like to sign him on a free transfer."
Garrone also responded to demands made by Sampdoria captain Angelo Palombo, who feels the team needs reinforcing in light of Cassano's exit.
"The constitution allows you to freely express opinions, but Palombo should have also stayed quiet. He has spoken with his heart, but when you speak with your heart, reason is often put to one side.
"It's not up to him to say such things."
