Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is ready to compile a list of people to replace Jose Mourinho as manager and says that England top dog Fabio Capello looks "interesting."

The newly crowned champions of Europe are looking for a new manager as Mourinho is primed to take over at Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Moratti has already ruled out a return for Giuseppe Meazza and Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini.

Capello has been mooted as a possibility, and Moratti would not dismiss the chance of approaching the Italian—even though he has said he's committed to the England role. 

Moratti has said, "We have had contact with him in the past and he may be interesting."

However, after England's 3-1 win over Mexico, Fabio seemed to play down rumours regarding that or any possible move in the future.

Capello has been linked to several of his former teams but stressed that he is completely fixed on preparing the England team for World Cup in South Africa next month.

"Juventus, Inter, Real Madrid, the other teams, AC Milan," he smiled. "It's good for me, but I am focused on the World Cup."

It's nice to see that he is focused on the England team at the moment and that no rumor will distract him from the task.

However, he did not rule out a move after the World Cup, so...watch this space.
