Conflicting Mihajlovic-Inter reports

Wildly conflicting reports abound on Sinisa Mihajlovic, Fiorentina and Inter, as he is either off the market or will sign on Monday.

The last 48 hours have seen rapid developments for the Nerazzurri, who need a replacement Coach now Leonardo has joined Paris Saint-Germain as director of sport.

Newspapers, websites, radio and television in Italy are continually updating with conflicting stories.

There is mystery around the fate of Mihajlovic, as the Corriere dello Sport insists Mihajlovic has a deal in place with Inter and will formally sign for the club on Monday.

The Gazzetta dello Sport maintains the Serb is off the market after committing himself to Fiorentina for another year, so President Massimo Moratti has already met with Porto manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The Corriere Fiorentino believes the Viola were going to release a statement confirming Mihajlovic's status last night, but then opted to wait until Monday.

If Inter have not found another alternative by Monday, then Fiorentina could agree to release their Coach.

It's a race against time for the Nerazzurri, whose other candidates include Villas-Boas, ex-Palermo Coach Delio Rossi and former Genoa tactician Gian Piero Gasperini.

This chaos also involves other clubs, as Mihajlovic's assistant manager Dario Marcolin was all set to take over at Brescia, but could change his mind if given a place in the Inter staff.
