Ricky Alvarez will be staying with Inter Milan next season.

Despite offers from Espanyol and Porto, the Argentine midfielder will stay with Inter, says his agent, Marcelo Simonian.

"Ricky has been confirmed 100% by the club and (Andrea) Stramaccioni. I have called many teams to ask questions, to test the waters. At least 5-6 in Italy. But Inter is counting on him," Simonian told TMW.

"The knee problems have been overcome, Alvarez is now ready for Inter. He has an incredible technique. will improve again and we will see all his qualities."
