Thohir still planning Javier Zanetti talks
Inter Milan president Erick Thohir will return to Milan in a fortnight to discuss the future of captain Javier Zanetti after running out of time to do so on his latest visit.

Zanetti, 40, who has been at the Nerazzurri since joining from Banfield in 1995, is out of contract at the club in the summer.
Thohir has stressed that the former Argentina international’s future "is an important issue" but that there was no time to meet with the player last weekend "due to the many other meetings" he held in Milan.
"I'd promised I would talk to Zanetti during this trip, but sometimes you can't do everything you plan," Thohir said after meeting with former Inter president Massimo Moratti on Wednesday.
"I'll be back in Milan within a fortnight to discuss the preparations for the 2014-15 season, both in terms of the squad and the club, commercially."
By then, the signing of Nemanja Vidic from Manchester United is expected to have been confirmed.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter's director of sport Piero Ausilio is due to meet with the defender to thrash out terms during a trip to England.
Vidic, 32, is available on a free transfer after announcing he will not be extending his contract with the Red Devils.
Ausilio may use the trip to speak with a few other targets. Arsenal's Bacary Sagna and United's Patrice Evra will also become free agents in July if they do not commit to a new deal, and have both been linked with moves to Inter.
