Mourinho admits his first act as manager of Internazionale could be to stage a transfer raid on former club Chelsea.

Mourinho was named as Roberto Mancini's successor at the Giuseppe Meazza on Monday and the Portuguese has since confessed he is considering 'two or three' new signings.

Chelsea quartet Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Michael Essien and Ricardo Carvalho have all been rumoured to be targets of Mourinho as he looks to build a side capable of wining the UEFA Champions League next season.

And Mourinho, who left Chelsea in September 2007, has admitted he would be keen to join forces with players from his Stamford Bridge past.

"I think it is normal as a consequence of the relationship with my players," said Mourinho when asked about speculation linking him with moves for Chelsea players.

Future

"Almost all of them want to work with me again in the future and the same goes for me.

"I have a great relationship with almost all of my players and it is normal that these rumours spread.

"But it depends on whether Chelsea want to sell - there has got to be a relation between what one club wants and what another club wants to do.

"The president (Massimo Moratti) knows what I would like, but I am not discussing names with the press. I am not ready to do that."

Inter Milan have confirmed on Sky Sports News this morning, that they will be contacting Chelsea at some point today, to try prizing a player away, if of course, we are willing to sell.

Based on Inter’s current squad, they probably lack quality Centre Midfield options, so my reckoning is that they will make a substantial bid for Lamps.

Having said that, as we know, it could just as easily be Drogba.

Inter Milan chief Marco Branca admits they will back Jose Mourinho's bid to bring Michael Essien and Frank Lampard from Chelsea this summer.

He said: "There is a list. We will do what- ever is possible to please Mourinho but we have to see what the costs are. We have to wait because there are going to be long negotiations until we get to the right price.

"If there is a player to get from Chelsea, they will decide the price. It could be difficult as big players playing for big teams are more difficult to get than other players.

"It's always much better if those players want to leave. But clubs want to keep their big players."

But, Jose has made it clear that many players from Chelsea would like to join him and he wants many.

Strictly speaking he hasn't said he wants many. He said he wants 2 or 3 new players at Inter. I think Essien and Lampard would both be on his list as would Carvalho and Drogba but I don't think he will get all of them.

I'd be surprised if Essien or Carvalho went but not Lampard and Drogba.

Essien £50m (hands off price).

Drogba £30m

Carvalho £30m (could be replaced by Alex and make the club £30m in the process).

Lampard £30m (but I'm hoping Frank is a true Blue and will stay).

I would settle for Drogba and Carvalho leaving for £60m.

Essien MUST MUST stay.

If Frank wants to go, we will all respect his decision to leave and wish him luck, (ching ching make that £90m you owe us Inter). clap2.gif

My money is on Inter bidding for Lampard.

Now, here, Chelsea have a bit of a conundrum.

I personally don’t think that Frank would be willing to pay £6.5 million to buy himself out of his contract with a year remaining. He’s not that desperate, surely?.. Therefore, Inter will have to make a fairly substantial bid to tempt Chelsea to sell their most prolific midfield goalscorer, and probably, most prized marketing tool, along with JT; Say, something in the region of £15-20m.

Do we try to move heaven and earth to keep a 30 yr old Frank Lampard, knowing that we will probably have to offer him circa £130k per week, on a four year contract? Or do we consider cashing in on a 30 yr old Frank Lampard, knowing that his best days may certainly be behind him, and accepting that the time is right to move on?

The club certainly have a tough decision to make.

Not really, they should overprice Frank with the intention of keeping him till the end of next season. We dont need the money, if he is desperate to go he will leave in 12 months. He would be risking his England place the year the WC qualifiers start and it would be a massive gamble for him.

By not offering him a new contract now, I think he would definitely leave in 12 months, if not immediately. The lack of support from Chelsea would false his hand.

Regardless of whether we need the money or not, to let him go on a free would be seen as criminal, and £15-20m would help balance the books.

Vieira, Cambiasso, Maniche, Dacourt, Pizzarro, Stankovic, if memory serves

Inter have the biggest, most bloated squad I can remember

And personally, I think that selling Lamps, at this stage, without a manager sends a dangerous dangerous precendent that might cause more than a few players to jump ship. This club is looking like its on the brink at the moment and that the slightest nudge will trigger chaos. If were going to sell Lamps, let it be AFTER a new manager comes in, or not at all.

I think Lamps is better than any one of those that you have quoted. Cambiasso is quality, and very important for them, but I take your point regarding the club at this moment in time.

We seem to be in a very precarious position.

Absolutely

Look at it from Lamps' perspective: yes he is loved by Chelsea and the fans, but he gets battered by the press and the numpty brigade every away day calling him a one dimmensional goal difflection specialist. He has the mental toughness to silence these critics, but it sure shows a lack of appreciation based on what he has done in an England shirt. Those f**king bar stewards

He is 30, has won every trophy in England, and has secured his status as a Chelsea legend. Now, the club is managerless, and one of the best in the game, who Frank knows well and loves, waltzes into Inter, with a huge warchest, and one mission: the CL trophy.

He looks at his own club and sees the leadership in flux and no real direction. Meanwhile Inter Mourinho are already breaking out the cheque book to go to war. No Sparky, no Ancelotti, and seemingly, no idea of what they want to do. And im sure someone like Drogba is making no stranger of the fact that he is going to hop on the first flight to Italy as soon as the bid comes in. Its practically fait acompli that we are losing players to these teams. THAT ALONE is a worrying sign and enough to undermine anyones confidence

There is no shame in him thinking "Im going to make the most of my last, best years, and prove that I can do it in Europe and another league." Im sure he wouldnt mind going with Elen and Luna to a wonderful city like Milan, especially when he is wanted by another club, and uncertain about what is happening where he is

I wouldnt blame him at all. But I really hope he doesnt go.

totally agree that JM should be told where to go. Unlike as he calls them 'my boys' they are OUR boys employees of our club as he was when he was getting a good wage signing them for us. Time to start acting like a big club and telling him we are a buying club not a selling one.

If any club wants our top players then they should pay the stupid amounts we always have to and Inter and AC Milan should pay even more to make up for the times they've ripped us off.

Also all this stuff Jose is saying like "all Chelsea players want to play for me blah blah" is just another form of tapping up in my opinion.

Well according to Five Live, Ian McGarry does not believe he is after Essien as his style of play will not suit Serie A.

He thinks it is Lampard.

As for Drogba they already have a bloated squad with strikers galore and he would have to get rid of some of them first to accommodate him and risk annoying Ibrahimovic (spelling?) who is a Moratti darling and has just signed a long extension to his contract.

As for Ashley well that's news to me.

My money is Lampard and may be Riccy.

But as Jose himself said in the end it comes down to the market, Inter offer a price if Chelsea want to sell they do and if they don't then they look elsewhere.

Big decision time for Lampard and it does not help that we have no manager.

Big decision for Chelsea too, do they offload a player who is going to be on the downward slope of his career in any case?
