Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has ruled out a possible swoop for Arsenal captain CescFabregas.

Moratti dismissed the possibility of attempting to signFabregas in January following recent speculation linking the 23-year-old World Cup winner with a move to Italy.

“CescFabregas to Inter? I believe he won’t arrive,” said Moratti.

abregas’s Arsenal future was the subject of much speculation last summer. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger emphasised his desire to keep hold of his prized asset after Barcelona had a €35m bid rejected by the North London club.

abregas signed a contract extension in 2009 to keep the 23-year-old at Arsenal until at least 2015.

Moratti also dismissed speculation linking Inter with a move for controversial Sampdoria forward Antonio Cassano in January.

“Cassano is undoubtedly a great player, I read in the newspapers that we have made progress, but I don’t think so,” revealed the 65-year-old.

He added: “These are just rumours that don’t match the truth. His arrival is fantasy football.”
