Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has denied reports that his club is considering making an offer for Manchester United midfielder David Beckham.
Rumours that the England captain was set to join Inter began last week, when newspaper Il Messagero said the player's wife Victoria met Moratti in Milan and had instructed estate agents to find a house in the Italian city.
People have been suggesting I met the player's wife during her recent stay in Milan, but it's not true,' Moratti was quoted as saying in sports weekly Controcampo on Monday.
All I can say is that he's a great player - not just because he's English and I like English players, but because he's very skilful and often decisive for his club,' Moratti added.There's no deal going on. We couldn't afford such an expensive operation.
