Internazionale have confirmed their interest in signing Luis Figo.Internazionale have confirmed their interest in signing Luis Figo.
The Italian giants were linked with a move for Figo earlier this week and now supremo Massimo Moratti has stated his desire to land the Real Madrid star - who was wanted by Liverpool.
"It's true what the newspapers have said this week," said Moratti.
"Figo is a player that everyone likes but it depends on how he can fit into the mechanism of the squad and how much space he can get.
"I think that Real and the player's wishes are evident, but everything is linked to our transfer market departures."
Inter have also been linked with a £9 million for PSV Eindhoven's Alex - who is owned by Chelsea.
The Blues financed Alex's move to PSV from Santos in 2004, and as such they will decide on his future.
PSV want him to stay, but Alex is now wanted by Inter - should their protracted move for Walter Samuel fail.
Inter are understood to have offered é¼9 million to Chelsea, but The Blues are not keen on letting the 23-year-old out of their clutches on a permanent basis - so they may allow Alex to move to Giuseppe Meazza on loan.
The Nerazzuri will decide whether to pursue Alex over the coming days, while they continue to negotiate for Samuel.
Another player Moratti is talking with is Udinese's David Pizarro.
The Chilean star appears to be closing on a dream move to Inter.
"The negotiation is not ended yet, although there are only a few details to define," said Moratti.
