Damiao admits the prospect of playing in England is a 'great attraction', but insists that he is happy at Inter for the time being.

"I have a contract until 2015 with Internacional and for the moment, despite all the rumours, I am staying where I am and that is in Porte Alegre with Internacional," the Brazilian told the Elastico.

"The Premier League holds great attraction, of course. I was in England for quite some time during the Olympics and it is a great country with good people.

"But for the moment I am staying put."

Damiao also suggested that he could be interested in moving to Chelsea to reunite with his former Inter team-mate Oscar.

"Oscar is a fantastic player," he said.

"I had an excellent relationship with him on the field at Internacional and it is true that I would like to be reunited with Oscar. We still play together when fielded for Brazil.

"But, I have a contract to honour at Internacional. Regardless of the fact that Internacional will not play the Copa Libertadores next year, I maintain my focus here at Internacional.

"It is not an incentive to leave. When a European club will come to the fore, we will see."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
