Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti said on Saturday the decision whether Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard joins the San Siro outfit is ultimately down to the player.
Moratti said that the time has arrived for the 30-year-old England international to make his intentions clear of where he wants to spend the new season.
“We've made our offer to Chelsea and now it depends on the player. He is someone we like, but we can't do any more than this,” the Inter chief told Corriere dello Sport.
Lampard has been a summer-long transfer target for the Italian champions and was one of new Inter boss Jose Mourinho's key players during the Portuguese's time at Stamford Bridge.
However, new Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scholari has insisted that Lampard is part of his plans, despite having just bought Barcelona's Portugal international Deco and already having Germany captain Michael Ballack on the books.
