Inter general manager Giuseppe Marotta said Luciano Spalletti will continue as head coach next season.

Former boss Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte have been linked with Inter, which is on track for its best Serie A finish since 2010-11.

However, Marotta insisted coach Spalletti will remain at the helm in 2019-20.

"Have I already chosen the Coach for next year? It is Spalletti, he has a contract, we're happy," Marotta said.

Inter is third in the league following Saturday's 1-1 draw with champion Juventus at San Siro.

Not since 2011 - when Inter was runner-up - has the club finished as high as third but Spalletti's men are poised.

Inter has collected 62 points, three more than fourth-placed Atalanta with four matches remaining.
