The Romania defender's agent, Victor Becali, has confirmed he wants to leave the Nerazzurri.
"The fact of having made money without playing shames him a lot, he does not want to continue like this," said Becali.
"He has health problems and does not want to take advantage of Inter."
Chivu is expected to terminate his contract with Inter this week and will likely take up a role with the Romanian FA.
