MILAN - Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho's
dream move to Real Madrid is far from a done deal, Inter
president Massimo Moratti said on Tuesday.
Moratti said his club's relationship with Mourinho was all
but over following dinner between the pair on Monday but the
Champions League and treble winners are not giving up the
Reports have said Inter want around 16 million euros in compensation from Real if they move for Mourinho
given his deal finishes in 2012.
"No, what do you mean it's done, it's the opposite. We
haven't even started," Moratti told reporters before being asked
if Wednesday would be the decisive day.
"No, it will take a bit of time."
Some Inter fans are upset with Mourinho for the timing of
his comments wishing to leave amidst their stunning treble
success and feel he has stolen the limelight from the team.
The club president had been quoted in the media as saying he
had been "taken for a ride" by Mourinho but Moratti firmly
denied saying any such thing.
"He achieved all the objectives he had to achieve. The
annoying part will be now, the pain of finding someone new," he
said, adding there was no particular name in the frame.
Fulham's ex-Inter boss Roy Hodgson, Liverpool coach Rafa
Benitez and former Inter assistant coach Sinisa Mihajlovic, who
surprisingly quit Catania on Monday, have all been linked with
the Serie A champions.
