Mourinho set to take over at Inter Milan

Jose Mourinho looks set to end months of speculation about his future by taking over from Roberto Mancini at Inter Milan. Despite winning three league titles in a row it was confirmed that Mancini would leave the current Italian champions following a meeting with Inter president Massimo Moratti yesterday.

According to the Italian press Mourinho has been learning Italian for the last five months in order to be ready for the job. It is also widely reported that the Special One will try to convince Didier Drogba, Ricardo Carvalho and Frank Lampard to swap London for Milan as he looks to put his stamp on an already successful team.

The Portuguese will be competing for honours against another former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri who is in charge at Serie A side Juventus. Also it doesn't look as if Mancini will be spending too much time down the job centre with BBC claiming that the Italian is favourite for the vacancy at Chelsea.
