Inter president Massimo Moratti has admitted that the club could lose Wesley Sneijder to Anzhi Makhachkala in the summer transfer window, even though he still sees the Dutchman as a key player for the Serie A side.
The Nerazzurri already sold Samuel Eto'o to the ambitious Russian side last year, and a number of recent reports suggest that the playmaker could follow in the footsteps of his former teammate this summer.
"Could Sneijder follow Eto'o's path? It's possible that there could be such a risk," the 67-year-old was quoted as saying on the club's official 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 is 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 Inter is slowly making inroads 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. These are things that have to take place by putting everything together, which also means taking a look at our revenue."
Lucas recently admitted that he would jump at the opportunity to join Inter.
