"I have spoken to (Inter coach Jose) Mourinho, who told me that he is happy with me and that I have a lot to give to Inter," Burdisso told "I have no intention to change team."

He added: "My relationship with Mourinho is excellent and I hope that it remains like that in the future.

"Last season was a positive year for me and my wish is to remain at Inter."
