Zanetti: No talks over Chelsea switch

The Premier League side are interested in offering the Argentine a deal with a view to him taking up a coaching role, but the player has reiterated his desire to stay at San Siro

Inter defender Javier Zanetti says he has not discussed a reunion with former coach Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

The 40-year-old has been a Nerazzurri player since 1995 but the Blues boss is interested in offering Zanetti a role as player-coach after working with the Argentine during his time in charge at San Siro.

“Honestly, I have a great relationship with Mourinho, we often talk, but we never talked about these things,” he told Inter Channel

“I believe that Inter fans know what I feel about this shirt. I always said, to me, Inter is my life and that… my desire is to stay here. Say no more.

“Since I’m a player I think there are two possibilities: either play from the start or be on the bench and then be able to enter.

“I will be able to make my contribution, but I think that everything is going in the right direction.”

Zanetti has made just four starts for the club this season after recovering from an Achilles problem he suffered at the back end of last term.
