Inter president Massimo Moratti has conceded defeat in his attempts to persuade manager Jose Mourinho to resist the lure of Real Madrid.

According to reports, Mourinho had agreed a deal in principle with Spanish side Real prior to Inter’s Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday.

Moratti has held talks with the Portuguese in a bid to convince him to stay at Inter, following a triumphant season which has seen the Italian outfit complete an historic treble.

“The relationship is ended. Now we will see what to do,” Moratti said after the discussions.

“The coach’s attitude was that of a person who wants to go to Real Madrid.”

Moratti added: “There’s always hope, but we have to respect the wish of a person who already thinks his task has expired.”

Mourinho is now set for further talks with Moratti in the next 48 hours to decide his future.

“I prefer to have a personal meeting rather than having others mediate,” said Moratti.

“That meeting has not taken place. It will take place in the next few days.”

Moratti has already dismissed reports that Manchester City’s former Inter boss Roberto Mancini is wanted as a successor to Mourinho.

Speculation has therefore suggested that Guus Hiddink is a target along with England coach Fabio Capello.
