Chivu interested in Madrid switch

03 June 2010 07:03
Cristian Chivu would be interested in following former coach Joe Mourinho from Internazionale to Real Madrid, according to his agent. Mourinho swapped Milan for Madrid after leading Inter to Champions League glory and an Italian league and cup double last season. Romania international Chivu was a key player in a strong defensive unit and could be persuaded to move to La Liga. However, agent Giovanni Becali has conceded that Lazio's Aleksandar Kolarov is a target of Mourinhos to play left-back for Real next season. He said: "I will go to meet Mourinho but I don't know if he wants Chivu. "We have not spoken yet, but I think Real are interested in Kolarov for the left side, but Mourinho has always appreciated Cristian. We will see."
