Diego Milito's proposals for a pay rise have been accepted by Inter, but the club will not loosen their grip on Nicolas Burdisso, with his move to Roma now appearing in jeopardy.
Sky Sport Italia reports Fernando Hidalgo, who represents both players, met with Nerazzurri transfer chief Marco Branca this afternoon to establish the next steps in relation to their futures.
It seems Milito will see his contract improved, but tension has gone up in relation to the Giallorossi's hopes for Burdisso.
"I am satisfied. Milito wanted to stay at Inter, and the club understood this. There were clubs interested in him, but Inter have acknowleged the situation. I will speak with him soon," Hidalgo said.
The outlook for Burdisso sounded less optimistic.
"The player wants to remain at Roma, this is clear. Inter's requests must be met, but they are high demands. Burdisso may end up staying at Inter," he added.
Roma are keen to sign the Argentinian stopper permanently, but Inter will not budge on their €8 million demands.
