Manchester United striker target Ezequiel Lavezzi is no longer on the radar for Inter Milan, with CEO Ernesto Paolillo ruling out a deal for the Argentina international.

Rumours were speculating that Lavezzi could be involved in a swap deal for Goran Pandev, but Paolillo insisted this wasn’t the case.

"Pandev for Lavezzi? I absolutely exclude it,” he said.


"Pandev's transfer to Napoli was done considering the good relationship there is between Napoli and Inter, regardless of Lavezzi's future."

United have long been connected with Lavezzi, with the 26-year-old starring for Napoli since he moved to the club in 2007.

A Boca Juniors youth product, Lavezzi has scored 27 goals in 127 appearances for the Serie A side, and United were particularly interested in taking him on over the last summer.

But Napoli held firm and spurned any requests from United, though interest may be reignited in the January transfer window. And should Inter still insist they have no interest in the star, Sir Alex Ferguson could be the front runner if Lavezzi wants a move.
