Manchester City target Mario Balotelli has refused to rule out a stay at Inter.
Balotelli, who turns 20 on Thursday, has long been expected to complete a move to Manchester City, and Roberto Mancini had said he hoped to complete the signing this week.
Inter are also understood to be eager for the sale to go through as president Massimo Moratti has said they need to raise money to fund any bid for Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano.
Asked about his future after making his Italy debut against Ivory Coast on Tuesday, Balotelli told Sky Sport Italia 24: "I already know where I'm going, but I don't want to say. I know what will happen, but I won't necessarily leave."
Balotelli was included in Inter's 32-man European Super Cup squad on Tuesday, sparking speculation that the move could be off, although the squad can be changed up to 24 hours before kick-off. Inter face Atletico Madrid on August 27.
