Javier Zanetti is yet to decide if he'll play on with Inter Milan next season.
The 40 year-old wing-back is being urged to continue by former Inter president Massimo Moratti.
"Moratti says I'll play up to 45 years of age? I'm very touched by these words of the president. I'm here to help out and when this season ends, I will decide whether to continue or not."
The Inter captain added: "My career will end at Inter because Inter is my home, and Italy is my second country, which has welcomed me and my family."
