Materazzi: 'I could leave Inter'

Marco Materazzi has confirmed he's considering a move away from Inter. “I don't know if I'll be here next season, but the President gave me carte blanche.”

The veteran defender turns 38 in August and has been linked with one last season overseas in America or at QPR.

“I spoke to President Massimo Moratti, as I always do at the end of every season,” he told Inter Channel.

“The Nerazzurri jersey is like a second skin for me, so to come back as a director would be wonderful.

“I have not yet evaluated offers from other clubs. It would be a shame to leave Inter and I would certainly give an adequate goodbye to the fans who have given me such a great life here.

“I don't know if I will be at Inter next season, but I haven't made any decision. The President gave me carte blanche and said I can do what I want. Our rapport is so clear that he'll be happy whatever I decide to do.”

Matrix has been a figurehead more than anything else this term, playing 11 games in all competition for a total 732 minutes of football.

“At the start of a campaign everyone is ambitious and I always want to play, but I have never demanded or expected anything. I think being ambitious is a good thing.”
