Mario Balotelli is 'priceless' and Maicon is also not for sale, according to Inter Milan sporting director Marco Branca.
Balotelli, 19, who frequently clashed with former boss Jose Mourinho during Inter's triumphant campaign last season, is reportedly being tracked by Manchester United and Manchester City.
Brazilian Maicon is understood to be a target of Mourinho, who is keen for the right-back to join him at Real Madrid.
But Branca insists neither player is on the market and that both will remain at the San Siro.
"We are in a very privileged position having won so much and it's true that every day we are receiving calls because everyone wants at least six or seven of our champions," said Branca.
"Maicon and Balotelli? Balotelli is priceless. At this time, he and Maicon are not on the market.
"When and if there are requests we will kindly examine them but they are not on the market.
"The interest in Balotelli from both Manchester clubs is real and very strong, but has not reached an official offer.
"There will be no meeting with City on Thursday."
