Roma defender Antonio Rudiger has dismissed suggestions he could leave the Stadio Olimpico for Inter ahead of next season.
Newly appointed Inter boss Luciano Spalletti is reportedly keen on a reunion with Rudiger after previously working with the Germany international before swapping Rome for Milan.
Rudiger has been a regular in Roma’s line-up since joining from Stuttgart ahead of the 2015-16 campaign and, with Inter heavily bankrolled by their wealthy owners Suning Holdings, several reports have suggested a move to San Siro is imminent.
However, the Germany defender – who is on international duty at the Confederations Cup – was keen to cool rumours of a move to Roma’s Serie A rivals.
“I have read the rumours that I will leave Roma for Inter,” he told Bild.
“I have also read that my team-mate Kostas Manolas is being linked with Inter as well…
“But if we had to believe everything the papers write, I would already have left Roma last season. Yet I am still here.
“My brother is dealing with these rumours, I am fully focused on the Confederations Cup.”
The 24-year-old has a contract with Roma until June 2020.
