Jose Mourinho, the former Chelsea manager currently on a sabbatical, is set to take over the reigns at Inter Milan next season, according to reports.

The 45-year-old had recently denied holding talks with the Serie A club but he is believed to have met with Inter president Massimo Moratti over the weekend and will replace Roberto Mancini.

Ciao sabbatical? Jose Mourinho has denied speculation but reports say he will be San Siro coach. Mourinho is currently the most sought after coach in Europe following his early departure from Chelsea last September.

And according to the Sun, the Portuguese coach has also drawn up a list of possible targets to join him at the San Siro.

Unsurprisingly they include two players from Stamford Bridge as he bids to restart his managerial career with a flourish.

Both Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have been unsettled in recent months and a £35 million bid is being prepared to lure them away from Chelsea.

Midfielder Lampard has repeatedly been linked with moves abroad in recent seasons while the 29-year-old held a good rapport with Mourinho during their three years together at Stamford Bridge.

Drogba, meanwhile, has been below his best since he returned from the Africa Cup of Nations and is seen as one of the most likely of Chelsea's stars to leave this summer.

Mourinho signed the 30-year-old Ivory Coast striker for a club record £24 million in July 2004 from Marseille.

Roberto Mancini, the 43-year-old former Italy international, currently has a contract until 2012 at the San Siro.

However, he announced on Mar 11 after Inter's defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League that he would be stepping down from the job before making a u-turn the following day.

Inter Milan currently lead the Italian Serie A by six points from second-placed AS Roma. At the weekend they beat Torino 1-0, in a match that had a total of nine bookings.
A strike-partnership combo of Didier Drogba & Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be immense IMO!

Well if he does take the Inter post I am sure some current Chelsea players will follow like Drogba and maybe even Cech. They are a good side and with Mourinhio will be a bigger threat in Europe for sure and would be a good job for him to take imo.

I would hate to be an Inter fan personally.
Fair enough he'll probably win some trophies
there, but they are about to enter an era of
the most mind numbingly boring football
known to man.

Inter deny Mourinho deal

Moratti rubbishes report

Internazionale president Massimo Moratti has denied that Jose Mourinho has agreed a deal to become their new manager.

Reports earlier this week claimed that Inter had agreed a deal with the former Chelsea boss to take charge at the Giuseppe Meazza this summer.

However, Moratti has been quick to deny that any such deal is in place.

"Who knows how many times I have heard this recently," he told Telelombardia.

"It's not true and there's no further need to deny it."

Current coach Roberto Mancini stated after their UEFA Champions League exit to Liverpool that he would leave the club - only to retract the statement.

But despite Inter nearing another Serie A title - Mancini's future is anything but finalised.
