The Brazil international, who is co-owned by Inter and Bologna, was being linked with a San Siro departure but recent comments suggest that he will remain in Italy at least for a little while.
"It’s true that Roma were interested in me. They sent out some feelers, but I decided to stay at Inter until my contract expires in 2014," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I have no intention of leaving the Nerazzurri, because in August I want to beat Milan in the Italian Super Cup and then take back the Scudetto," he added.
"Before 2014, I want to lift the Champions League again. The truth is I have the enthusiasm of a child and am determined to start for Brazil in the World Cup we host in 2014. To achieve that, I need to keep winning for Inter, so I’m hunting for another treble."
