Udinese owner Gianpaolo Pozzo wants veteran striker Antonio di Natale to remain with the club once he retires.

Di Natale was linked with AC Milan last month.

"Toto will stay with us, because he is our captain and, as I always say, he will conclude his career here," Pozzo reassured through Udinese Channel.

"He will do so certainly as a player and also I hope as a director too, once he has finished his splendid career as a player."
