Alvarez hoping for Inter stay

Inter Milan midfielder Ricky Alvarez has declared his desire to remain at the club beyond the end of the season.

Alvarez has been with Inter since the summer of 2011 but speculation has suggested that he could soon be set for a move elsewhere.

The Argentina international admits that anything could happen with his long-term future but he envisages staying at the club for several more years.

His immediate priority, though, is to help Inter finish the campaign strongly and push on from their current position in fifth.

"I am thinking only about ending the season well," he told reporters. "For the rest there is my agent and the club.

"I want to continue playing at Inter and I see myself here for many years, then, in football, you never know."
