Inter Milan assistant boss Beppe Baresi was coy over Mario Balotelli's situation at the club.

He said: "The only thing the club has told me to say about this is that Balotelli is not on the market and will not be put up for sale. He is an Inter player and remains an Inter player.

"We have already been playing with just two forwards for a while now, so I think the team has a pretty clear shape and we'll continue with this system which allows us to have a more balanced and compact side."
