Yesterday the Italian ambassador to China announced a deal had been struck to play in Beijing on August 21.
"The Lega Calcio wishes to point out that no decision has been made on the date or venue for this game," read a statement released in the evening.
However, Inter are already standing up to complain about the clash with Coppa Italia Finalists Roma.
"The truth is that we sent a letter to the Lega Calcio confirming we cannot play in China on August 21, because on August 27 we must play the European Super Cup in Montecarlo," explained Inter general manager Ernesto Paolillo.
"Therefore the two dates are incompatible."
Either the fixture is moved to a European venue or the date must be changed.
