Mourinho to Get $125 Million to Bring Top Talent to Inter?

MOST COMMENTED

Not satisfied with recent Champions League results, Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho has successfully lobbied team owner Massimo Moratti for more spending cash and "has got the green light for a ($125 million) summer transfer assault on the Premier League," according to The Daily Mirror.

Mourinho is said to have his eye on six specific "battle-hardened" players, not surprisingly including the trio of Didier Drogba, John Obi Mikel and Ricardo Carvalho from his former team Chelsea.  His wish list also includes Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby, Tottenham's Jermaine Jenas and Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic.

According to an Inter Milan source, and echoing coach's comments after the team's loss to Manchester United last week, Mourinho "has made the case that the club cannot hope to fight against the English teams with the squad he was left with by Roberto Mancini," with Moratti now giving him "the chance to get the players he feels he needs."
