Football: Giggs is wanted by Inter.

INTER Milan president Massimo Moratti insists Ryan Giggs is their numberone target but admitted it is unlikely Manchester United will sell the Welsh winger this summer.

The Serie A side are preparing a bid for 29yearold Giggs after coach Hector Cuper revealed his main priority was to sign a wide player to supply the host of star strikers at the club.

Inter are desperate to win the Italian title for the first time since 1989 after falling just short to Juventus in the past two seasons.

Real Madrid star Luis Figo and Arsenal pair Freddie Ljungberg and Robert Pires are the other players linked with a move to the blue half of the San Siro. ``Giggs remains very interesting - he is our number one target,'' Moratti told Corriere dello Sport.

``I don't think Manchester United want to get rid of him after (David) Beckham's departure, and if one team does not give way the other cannot buy. '' Moratti and Inter directors Gabriele Oriali and Marco Branca are drawing up a bid as they look to pair Giggs alongside the likes of Christian Vieri, Hernan Crespo and Alvaro Recoba ``We are working on it and I think there is a possibility, but we are in no hurry,'' added Moratti.
