Inter Milan set for Australia date?

With Manchester United and Liverpool already on the way to Australia during the off-season, reports have now linked Inter Milan with a trip to Melbourne Indonesia   By GOAL AUSTRALIA

Inter Milan could play a friendly in Australia, depending on where the Italian giants finish in this season's Coppa Italia.

The match, to be played in Melbourne, has been slated for May 25 or 26 or June 1 or 2, according to reports in News Limited on Friday.

But Inter Milan will not be able to confirm the trip until April 18, with the tour hinging on them missing the Coppa Italia final.

They face AS Roma in the second leg of the Coppa Italia on April 17 at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milan.

Roma is leading the tie 2-1 after victory in Rome. The winner will face Lazio in the final on May 28.

Melbourne Heart chief executive Scott Munn said his club had been approached to host high-profile Inter.

"We have had contact with regards to Inter Milan but nothing has been set in concrete," Munn told News Limited.

The fixture would be another off-season highlight for football fans, with Manchester United meeting an A-League All Stars side in Sydney in July and Liverpool to play Melbourne Victory soon after.
