Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo has admitted he is flattered by interest from Italian club Inter but he has no intentions of leaving the Camp Nou.
A report from Diario Sport earlier this month claimed that the Brazil international is viewed as being non-transferrable by the Catalan giants due to his style of play and that he remains a key part of their project.
It is said that there are only a handful of players in Quique Setien’s side who will not be sold under any circumstances, with Lionel Messi and Frenkie de Jong among them.
However, a report in Gazzetta dello Sport claimed the former Gremio midfielder was one of four players – alongside Nelson Semedo, Junior Firpo and Carles Alena – who Inter would like if they were to countenance selling striker Lautaro Martinez to the Catalans.
“Inter being interested in me is an honour but I want to stay at Barcelona for now,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Inter are a giant club, with a great Coach and an impressive team.
“But right now, I am only thinking of Barcelona – I am very happy in the city and at the club, I want to be here for many years.”
Arthur has a contract with the club until the summer of 2024 with a €400m release clause, while transfermarkt gives him a market value of €70m.
