Italian giants plot swoop for Jose Mourinho

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan want to bring Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho back to the San Siro this summer, according to reports in Italy.

As reported by Le 10 Sport, Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has targeted Mourinho as his ideal replacement for current boss Walter Mazzarri.

When Mourinho took control at Chelsea for the second time he refused to rule out a return to Inter Milan further down the line.

He won a Champions League and two Serie A titles during a hugely successful two-year stint in Italy.

He left for Real Madrid but returned to Chelsea last summer. And while there's no indication he would ever think of leaving Stamford Bridge in the immediate future, the report claims Inter Milan have still identified Mourinho as a potential target.

Earlier this week Mourinho opened the door to a potential return to Italy when he gave an interview to Italian media organisation Mediaset.

He said: "Right now I'm fine at Chelsea, but in the future Abramovich could decide that my adventure here is over.

"That day I could go back to Italy and it's normal for me to think about Inter. But only Inter, not another Italian club."

Chelsea are in the title race in the Premier League this season, although Mourinho continually insists his side are not built to compete for a championship this season.

Inter Milan meanwhile currently sit fifth in Serie A, and don't look likely to qualify for the Champions League next season.

They are 11 points behind third placed Napoli.
