Inter chief Marco Branca has registered their interest with Monaco and has had Lele Oriali check on the youngster in French Ligue 1 action this season.

"I am happy at Monaco, but it is normal for every footballer to want to play in a major international competition and I feel ready now for such a stage," Menez, 20, said. "I have a contract that expires in 2010, for now I am not in a rush, but in June something could happen.

"Inter? I admit that for me they are a seductive hypothesis."
