Jose Mourinho holds talks at Inter Milan

Former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho will hold talks with Inter Milan about becoming the club's next manager.
Mourinho's personal advisor, Eladio Parames, has said that the 44-year-old and his agent Jorge Mendes flew to Italy yesterday to begin negotiations with Inter chairman Roberto Moratti.

"It is true they are in Italy and will return to Lisbon on Saturday," Parames said.

The Portuguese has been linked with a number of European clubs, and the England job, since he left Chelsea in September last year.

AC Milan and Barcelona have been speculated as clubs where Mourinho could return to management this summer but Parames has said that Inter had contacted the former Porto coach.

"Of course, it was Inter who contacted Mourinho and his agent, not Mourinho contacting them," Parames said.

"He [Mourinho] always showed interest in working in Italy, and he received the contact with pleasure."

Talks will raise suspicions as to whether coach Roberto Mancini will be sacked at the end of the current campaign.

Mancini announced he would step down at the end of the season following their Champions League exit to Liverpool earlier this month but reneged on that decision 24 hours later.

Milan are four points clear at the top of Serie A following last week's defeat to third-placed Juventus.

Meanwhile, Luis Figo is close to reaching an agreement to extend his stay with the Italian champions, according to the player's agent Miguel Macedo.

"He feels very well in Milan," Macedo said.

"These reports about Mourinho have nothing to do with Luis Figo's interest in staying with Inter. Since Luis joined the club, many good things have happened to him.

"He has a great relationship with Roberto Moratti, who showed interest to keep Luis [Figo] in the club."
