Zanetti will do 'what is best for Inter'

The Nerazzurri skipper has become a peripheral figure at San Siro and, amid interest from Chelsea and Jose Mourinho, says discussions over his future will take place in the summer
Inter captain Javier Zanetti says he will do what he feels is best for the club when deciding his future at the end of the season, with Jose Mourinho keen to bring the veteran to Chelsea.

The 40-year-old ruptured his Achilles tendon last April and has made only seven appearances for Walter Mazzarri's side this campaign.

Zanetti, whose contract at San Siro expires in June, is attracting interest from former boss Mourinho with a view to a position on the west London club's coaching staff, but Zanetti insists his next move is yet to be determined.

"Inter have given me so much and I am very proud," Zanetti said at a special presentation to receive the 'Cartellino Viola' Fair Play award. "This season I wanted to return from a serious injury, show I can be useful and keep playing.

"The most important thing is the future of this team, qualifying for Europe and finishing the season well. Then we will see - I am here and available.

"The bond between Inter and I will last forever. At the end of this season, thanks to the great relationship I have with president Erick Thohir, we will assess what is best for Inter."
