Inter Milan coach Spalletti already fed up with January market rumours

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti is already fed up with January market talk - with the window still over a week away from opening.

Joao Mario is being linked with a move away.

But Spalletti says: “If there's a chance in the transfer market, Ausilio and Sabatini will jump on it and put it away like Icardi and Perisic do.

“Our fans need to hear what we have to say. I'm happy and I will be until the end of the season. After that, everyone will make their own assessments.

“My players have no escape routes. We must keep going with consistency and what's been said between us.

“We've always said that we wanted to aim for certain positions in the table, and it's not easy because there are several top clubs to deal with.

“No-one's asked me to leave, Joao Mario's never said anything to me, and if I can, I'll answer him.

“He's a good player for Inter and he can give us the solutions to win. I prefer to be told that he'd like to win more."
