Internazionale supremo Massimo Moratti has reportedly launched a bid to persuade Luis Figo to remain in Serie A.
Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad have already announced the capture of the Portuguese international, who is set to team up with his new owners on 5th January.
But with the clock ticking on his time at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, it seems the Nerazzurri have now decided to make a counter offer.
Figo's contract with Inter is set to expire in June, but Moratti could now be set to offer him a season's extension to stay in Italy.
The 34-year-old is now thought to be reconsidering his options before making a final decision on his future at the beginning of the New Year.
