Dejan Stankovic will not enter the bloodstream of German football with Schalke by severing ties with Inter, insisting he wants to end his playing days at San Siro.
Reports claim the transfer beacon is flashing for the 32-year-old Serbian midfielder.
However, his attitude towards Inter is always hardening. His background is in Milan.
"It's the first time I have heard that Schalke are interested in me and I can say that it is nice when teams still look for you at 32," he told Vercerjne Novosti.
"However, I cannot see myself far from Inter or Italy, where I have been living for 13 years.
"This is my last experience abroad and I hope to close my career with Inter as I feel at home here.
"I think I will conclude my career at Inter, I am 95 per cent sure."
