New Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir insists there's been no talks about transfer strategy since his takeover.

Thohir moved to point out that any discussion about possible incomings is irrelevant until the window opens.

He told Tutto Mercato: "When someone writes that I want this or that player, that's an untruth.

"The market is closed and I have never spoken (about it). Before I decide to buy one, I have to consult with (Massimo) Moratti and the coach (Walter Mazzarri)."
