Fabio Capello's son says his father will remain as England manager despite interest from Italian giant Inter Milan.

Inter president Massimo Moratti is believed to have sounded out a move for Capello as he seeks a replacement for Leonardo following his departure to Paris St Germain.

The Italians have been frustrated in their search for a new coach after giving up on Chelsea target Andre Villas-Boas because of his £13million release clause at Porto.

Capello's contract with England expires after next year's European Championship and the Italian has always insisted he would see out his deal.

Capello's son Pierfilippo, who also acts as his lawyer and agent, confirmed Inter had held talks about luring the former AC Milan boss back to the San Siro, but that the 65-year-old will stay on as England boss.

Asked if it was true there had been talks with Inter, Pierfilippo Capello told The Sun: "Yes. But Fabio will remain with the FA."

Turkey boss Guus Hiddink is the latest name to be linked with the Inter role despite being mentioned with a possible return to Chelsea.
