Inter sets high price for Mourinho to Madrid

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has reportedly met with Jose Mourinho and set the coach free to move to Real Madrid, but the Spanish club will have to pay a steep price.

The Gazzetta dello Sport reported Tuesday that Moratti is prepared to let Madrid have Mourinho, right back Maicon and midfielder Ricardo Quaresma for a total of 35 million euros ($43 million).

Mourinho has two more years remaining on his contract with Inter but apparently has an escape clause that would pay Inter 16 million euros ($20 million) – which the coach will likely charge to Madrid.

Reports in Spain indicate Mourinho – who guided Inter to the Champions League title on Saturday – is set to sign a four-year contract with Madrid worth 10 million euros ($12 million) per season.
