Inter have something else to worry about, as after Samuel Eto'o and Leonardo, now Lucio “will consider the offers from big clubs.”
The Nerazzurri are in turmoil this week with Coach Leonardo quitting to become director general at Paris Saint-Germain and striker Eto'o admitting his future is uncertain.
“Lucio needs time to enjoy his summer holiday and prepare for the Copa America,” revealed agent Sandro Becker.
“Everyone knows he received a proposal from Malaga, but his strong desire is to play in a top European competition.
“Lucio is a top player and there are big clubs interested in him. I am taking care of everything and will sit down so together we can consider the offers from big clubs, but only after the Copa America.”
Lucio's departure is fairly likely, as the Brazil international defender's contract expires in June 2012.
