River Plate are chasing Inter Milan striker Hernan Crespo.

The Argentine giants are undergoing a major overhaul after a disappointing year and hope to secure former Inter star Diego Simeone as new coach.

Crespo is their big signing target for the new season, though the striker said: "If I had to return to Argentina the only possibility would be to join River.

"But for now that seems a dream. I have a contract with Inter until 2009 and therefore I cannot move. I do not like playing with the feelings of people."
