Inter president Massimo Moratti has admitted he does not know whether a deal for Juventus right-back Mauricio Isla will materialise.
The Chilean, who can operate in midfield as well as on the right side of the defence, is thought to be close a move to San Siro after failing to establish himself in the starting line-up in Turin.
He made only 20 appearances in all competitions for Juve last season, and his agent has been quoted saying a switch to Inter was “very probable” if a deal could be agreed between the clubs.
However, despite claiming that he enjoyed good communications with the Turin club, Moratti did not confirm a signing is close.
“Isla? Relations with Juve are good, but I do not know if the deal will go through or not, we’ll see,” Moratti told Sky Sport 24.
Inter have secured the futures of two of their younger talents, however, with goalkeeper Francesco Bardi and midfielder Marco Benassi both signing new deals.
Bardi and Benassi are now contracted to the club until 2017, and will gain Serie A experience next season after Inter agreed to loan the pair to newly promoted Livorno.
