Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has admitted they could lose Wesley Sneijder to Anzhi Makhachkala.
The Serie A giants already sold Samuel Eto’o to the ambitious Russian side last year, and recent reports suggest the playmaker could follow in the footsteps of his former team-mate in this transfer window.
“Could Sneijder follow Eto’o's path? It’s possible that there could be such a risk,” Moratti told the club’s website.
“As for me, I consider Sneijder to be quite a decisive player for Inter, beyond what can be the proper attention and willingness from other teams.”
Inter are being heavily linked with a move for Sao Paulo midfielder Lucas Moura as a potential replacement for Sneijder, and Moratti has made it clear that they are slowly making progress when it comes to a potential transfer of the Brazil international.
“The progress concerns finding out whether or not there is a chance. Now we have to see if we can manage to carry things out,” he said.
“These are things that have to take place by putting everything together, which also means taking a look at our revenue.”
