Speculation has surrounded the Argentina international's future because there are several world-class strikers at the club, including new signing Honduran David Suazo, Argentina's Hernan Crespo, Brazil international Adriano and Sweden hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"I have never said that I wanted to leave Inter... every day my name appears in the newspapers and this is not good," Cruz said.

"I haven't had any problems with [coach Roberto] Mancini or any other person at the club. I haven't created and do not want to create problems with anyone.

"Although there are many strikers, I belong to this team and I want to continue to be a player at Inter.

"My aim is to renew my contract. I have already spoken about that with the president [Massimo Moratti] and we will arrange everything shortly.

"I want to finish my career at Inter."

Cruz joined the Nerazzurri from Bologna in 2003.
