Genoa president Enrico Preziosi is all ears and ready to listen to a potential bid from Inter for Diego Milito, but he has warned the Nerazzurri to come to the table with a substantial offer, or else.
Il Corriere Dello Sport has carried reports claiming Jose Mourinho was planning a grandiose scheme to bring in Milito. Voices around the Nerazzurri are growing louder of the club's interest in the Argentine hitman and the 'Special One' is waiting for approval from Massimo Moratti.
The former Porto and Chelsea coach is rumoured to be planning a major financial bid for the prolific striker, and Preziosi is welcoming the possible move.
"Milito has an important contract with is, but if Inter present a major offer to the player then it will be hard for us to match it," the chief told Il Corriere Dello Sport.
"Also, if a big offer comes Genoa's way then we will have to sit down and discuss it."
Preziosi was speaking outside the Lega Calcio headquarters after Serie A club presidents gathered at an informal meeting.
Mourinho's master plan is to bring in major players to strengthen his squad, but without putting his club through ruinous expense.
