The Giallorossi have been rocked by the decision to uphold a band on them buying new players for the next two transfer windows.
Roma are not now able to sign new players, and can only sell their own players for cash and not include any exchange deals.
That led to reports that Roma will accept around é¼18 million from Inter to sell Chivu and swell their struggling financial situation.
However, Chivu has said that he wants to stay and coach Luciano Spalletti insists he does not want to let him leave Stadio Olimpico.
"Chivu won't move," said Spalletti.
"He says it and I'm convinced of this. I'm the coach and I continue working with the players I have at my disposal.
"We want to safeguard this group."
