Jose Mourinho said he had almost certainly taken charge of Inter Milan for the last time after leading the Italian side to Champions League glory at the Santiago Bernabeu - and revealed he will be discussing a move to Real Madrid with club president Florentino Perez in the coming days.

Mourinho's Inter secured an historic treble thanks to a 2-0 win over Bayern Munich, making him only the third coach to win European Cups at different clubs. The Portuguese follows in the footsteps of Ernst Happel and Ottmar Hitzfeld, having previously won the competition with Porto in 2004.

"The Champions League I won at Porto was my last game there and this time it will almost certainly be my last game for Inter," he said after the game.

The 3-0 final win over Monaco in 2004 turned out to be Mourinho's last game with Porto before moving to Premier League side Chelsea.

Mourinho admitted he is yet to sit down with Real Madrid, but said a meeting with president Perez was set to take place as soon as Monday.

"The day after tomorrow (Monday) I will speak to him," he said.

"I don't know the project yet, so I have to hear the project, but at the moment I am not the coach of Real Madrid; I am the coach of Inter and a very proud coach of Inter," he added.

Nevertheless, the 47-year-old believes he will share common goals with Real.

"It is an enormous club, a club that wants the same as me; I want to win, I want to feel important, I want to keep winning," he said.
