Jose Mourinho has been officially confirmed as the new manager of Real Madrid after the Spanish giants agreed a compensation deal with Inter Milan reported to be worth £6.8m.

Mourinho takes over from Manuel Pellegrini who was finally sacked on Wednesday.

Inter confirmed the news that Mourinho, who guided the Serie A club to a historic treble, had left the club earlier today in a statement on the club’s official website.

‘The president, Massimo Moratti, and Florentino Perez met this afternoon. In light of the excellent and constructive relations of friendship that exist between the two clubs, an agreement was reached on the contractual clause that binds Jose Mourinho to FC Internazionale.’

‘The time and the manner by which the agreement will be honoured has been defined. Massimo Moratti thanks Florentino Pérez for his willingness to join him in Milan and for his courtesy, which confirms, once again, the strong link between the two prestigious club.’
