The Bianconeri and the Biancocelester were competing to snap up the talented Chilean forward, and both have looked on the verge of signing him at differing points of the summer.
However, Marino stated that another side had entered the race, but also insisted that the club were now keen to keep hold of the South American.
"Effectively, outside of those two, there is another club, and only one, that could produce a major coup and sign Pizarro," said Marino.
"I cannot say any more at this point.
"President [Giampaolo] Pozzo said to me 'director - you must resist these offers' and this is what I will try to do."
The team in question is probably Internazionale, who have been relatively quiet in the transfer market following last season's disappointments.
