Mariangela Pira, a Sky Sport journalist who is very close to the goings on at Inter, has revealed that Inter have held talks with former manager Jose Mourinho over a possible return.
Mourinho famously led Inter to a treble and has been out of work since the end of last year following his sacking from Manchester United.
Multiple reports in the media have suggested that current Inter manager Luciano Spalletti will be removed from his position at the end of the season and Mourinho has been mentioned as a possible successor but Antonio Conte also has and as per Pira, Conte is the favourite to takeover from Spalletti.
“If Mou were to go to Roma (which seems likely and to date does not return to us, Conte is increasingly on pole and Zhang is increasingly in love),” she tweeted.
In follow up tweets she added:”I can confirm that Mourinho has spoken with Zhang but from what I understand there is no basis for him to return. When you speak about Mou’s demands, you must always remember that he is not someone who has won a lot since leaving Inter.
“From what I was told, Zhang likes Mourinho but there is nothing to be done. I would not be surprised if this was an independent initiative Marotta because they do not respect this kind of hierarchy. They value Conte very much and I also know that he is about to sign. For Marotta it is already done.”
