Massimo Moratti Hints That Inter Might Sell Big Stars

Inter president Massimo Moratti has warned that the global economic market could mean the sale of major players from his club.

Both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Douglas Maicon have been tipped to leave the club by Spanish media. Voices in Iberia claimed 'Ibra' was on the verge of joining Barcelona. Moratti did not mention any names during his interview with Inter Channel, but he did warn of possible departures.

"I am not pushing to sell players, but we have to see the offers that arrive. Of course, looking at the [economic] climate, it's possible that some players could leave," said the chief.

Moratti also spoke about the Kaka to Real Madrid deal. Naturally, the Inter man is delighted given his biggest rivals have sold their greatest asset, but he believes the dividends from the sale can only benefit the club.

"You become poor when you buy players, not when you sell them, so Milan have made an excellent deal [with Kaka]," added the chief.

"However, it was good economically, but not in sporting terms. Unfortunately you cannot have both."
