Lucio has been linked with a move away from the San Siro this summer, with Malaga among the clubs keen to acquire the services of the 33-year-old.

"I am very happy," Lucio told Corriere dello Sport. "Inter is a great club and I feel very happy here. I know can still win a lot of trophies with this jersey."

Lucio joined Inter from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009 and is under contract for a further year.
