Fabio Capello's son has confirmed that the England coach has been involved in talks with Inter Milan over becoming their next manager
Inter are on the search for a new coach after Leonardo quit the club last week after just six months in charge.
The club's president, Massimo Moratti, last week hinted that he could make an approach for Capello after being turned down by former Chile boss Marco Bielsa.
But according to Pierfilippo Capello, his father will remain with the Football Association until his deal ends next summer following Euro 2012.
Pierfilippo, who acts as his father's lawyer and agent, has hinted that the 65-year-old could return to Italy next summer.
But when asked if it was true that talks had taken place, he told The Sun: "Yes. But Fabio will remain with the FA."
A source added of talks with the Italian giants: "This was a concrete offer and a very attractive one.
"Capello was tempted. But he decided to be loyal and see out his contract.
"He felt he owed England that. Perhaps Inter will come back in a year."
Fabio was questioned about taking the role last week, but was quoted as saying: "I am in Marbella, in the sun, with my grandchildren.
"I am not aware of what is being said as in my house, my grandchildren have taken over the TV. They make the decisions regarding the TV and watch Walt Disney."
