Inter captain Javier Zanetti is considering extending his contract and playing for the Nerazzurri for a further year.
The Argentine is currently 39 years old and will be 40 before the 2013/14 Serie A campaign starts. Even so, he is not yet thinking about hanging up his boots and remains a regular option for Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni.
With Zanetti’s contract at Inter expiring next summer, he would have to agree a new deal to stay and, he has confirmed, he will be speaking to Stramaccioni and the club about his future.
"I’m going to talk with my club after my contract [ends]", said the Inter captain.
"In consultation with the coach and the president I will decide whether to continue.
"The first thing is to ensure Inter get back to the very top."
Zanetti has been with Inter for over 17 years.
Zanetti has enjoyed a hugely successful time at Inter, winning five Serie A titles, four Coppa Italias, one Champions League, one UEFA Cup and one FIFA Club World Cup, amongst numerous other accolades.
He has made over 800 appearances in a black and blue shirt, becoming a popular figure with the club’s fans.
