Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano has denied he's angling for a move to Inter Milan.

Reacting to reports yesterday that after starring in Sunday's 1-1 draw, he had spoken to Mancini about joining him at Inter next season, Cassano said: "I do not understand all this clamor. Mancini and I have a relationship that goes beyond mere football events, as I have repeatedly stated.

"What we said at the end of the game has nothing to do with my work, but this is just a dialogue between two friends."
