- Jose Mourinho is still adored by Inter Milan fans for winning the treble in 2010
- Sacked Manchester United boss is in the frame to take over at Italian side
- He will hold talks with Beppe Marotta but Antonio Conte is also candidate
Jose Mourinho is to hold talks with Inter Milan director Beppe Marotta over becoming manager of the Italian club for a second time.
The sacked Manchester United boss is still adored by Inter fans having delivered the treble in 2010.
Mourinho, 56, was dismissed from his post at Old Trafford on December 18 and is looking at his route back into management, holding talks with Inter on Thursday, according to the Mirror.

He has already turned down the chance to take over Benfica and is understood to be content with assessing his options until the summer.
Inter would welcome Mourinho back with open arms and his legacy lives on after he delivered the Serie A, Copa Italia and Champions League nine years ago.
Antonio Conte is also a potential candidate with current boss Luciano Spalletti under mounting pressure.
Inter are third in the Italian top flight but remain a massive 20 points adrift of leaders Juventus.

There is a feeling that Mourinho could help close that gap, one echoed by former Inter chairman Massimo Moratti.
‘Would I like Mourinho back at Inter? Yes, I’m very fond of him,’ he said.
‘However, we’ll give time to Spalletti to prove his worth. Diego Simeone? I love him too, but Mou is special.’
