Inter president Massimo Moratti revealed on Wednesday that the recent losses against Milan and Schalke haven't affected his opinion of head coach Leonardo, but he is reportedly lining up replacements for the Brazilian tactician, and Barcelona's Pep Guardiola is high on his list of targets.
The Nerazzurri were previously linked with a return for Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, and now Guardiola is being considered as a possible alternative, Tuttosport comments.
The Blaugrana tactician stated earlier this week that his spell in charge at Camp Nou is nearing its end and his comments clearly haven't gone unnoticed in Italy.
The Champions League-winning boss has also been linked with Roma, but Guardiola has allegedly already met Moratti to discuss the possibility of taking over at Inter. The 40-year-old recently travelled to meet some friends in Brescia, but also visited Milan to discuss his future with the Beneamata supremo.
Guardiola's current contract with Barcelona runs until the summer of 2012, but his recent comments have fuelled speculation that he could leave the club at the end of this season.
