Sao Paulo have confirmed the interest of Inter Milan in star attacker Lucas.

Inter and Real Madrid have been linked with Lucas this week.

Sao Paulo director Marco Aurelio Cunha told TMW: "Inter are interested in Lucas, but there is nothing ongoing.

"We want to keep him until 2014. This year he will not leave, nor the next. However, we can find an agreement for the sale in 2014, although the price and the situation will change between now and then."
