Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti insists a new manager will be in place by the weekend.
Moratti was asked for an update after Sinisa Mihajlovic ruled himself out of the running.
"I repeat that you will know everything by the end of the week," the oil baron said.
"Mihajlovic? This is already the third time I've heard that he'll stay at Fiorentina, so "
Gian Piero Gasperini is the new favourite to be handed the job, but Moratti was giving little away.
"The candidates are the same ones as yesterday," the San Siro chief added.
"I'm heading out of the country? Don't worry, there is always someone around who can give you the news."
