Alvarez wants to stay at Inter

Inter playmaker Ricky Alvarez has insisted he wants to stay at Inter, despite rumours of an interest from River Plate.

The 24-year-old has been plagued with injuries since his arrival at the Nerazzurri from Velez Sarsfield in 2011.

But the Argentina international has claimed that he is desperate to stay and make a name for himself in Europe.

“It is my desire to stay here,” he told ESPN. “I want to make a career in Europe.

“When I started at Inter I knew it would not be easy, but this experience is strengthening me as a player and as a person.

“My greatest desire is to remain at Inter. River Plate are a great team, perhaps the best in Argentina.

“But I am happy here.”
