Renowned Journalist Hints That Jose Mourinho Will Go To Real Madrid

Italian journalist Nando Sanvito has suggested that current Inter boss Jose Mourinho's next move will be to Real Madrid, and that the Nerazzurri will replace him with current Bordeaux boss Laurent Blanc.

'The Special One' is currently tied to the San Siro outfit until 2012, but he is frequently linked with moves elsewhere. Sanvito has hinted that the Portuguese could be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu when he is finished with the Nerazzurri.

"Watch what happens in Madrid - we know what was happening ten days ago with [coach Manuel] Pellegrini," Sanvito said to ilsussidiario.net.

"I understand [Florentino] Perez has spoken to [Luiz Felipe] Scolari, but the Madrid president considers him a temporary solution. If he does not win the Champions League, Perez will turn to Mourinho."

Meanwhile, the journalist is confident that Inter have someone in mind to replace the Portuguese tactician.

"How will [president Massimo] Moratti deal with a farewell from Mourinho? He is not unprepared," he claimed.

"I understand they are courting Laurent Blanc, the Bordeaux manager, and the interest is reciprocated."

Forty-three-year-old Blanc is familiar with Inter, having featured for the Beneamata in the latter stages of his playing career.
