Jose Mourinho is reportedly seeking a reunion with Diego Milito at Real Madrid, which would open the door for Antonio Cassano at Inter.
The former Nerazzurri Coach already tried to sign Milito over the summer after their Treble success, but could resume negotiations over the January transfer window.
Real need a new forward after Gonzalo Higuain suffered a herniated disc that will keep him out for two months.
Although Milito is cup-tied and still recovering from an injury himself, according to the Corriere dello Sport Mourinho considers him the ideal replacement.
While Inter would not release ‘El Principe' in the summer, the situation has changed dramatically.
Milito has barely scored so far this season due to poor form and fitness problems, while his departure would open the door for Cassano to come in.
If Sampdoria win their legal action to have his contract terminated for ‘insubordination,' then Cassano would be a free agent.
