Silvano Martina says Mourinho pulled back, however, after Vidic actually scored against Inter!
"In fact it is true. I can say that Inter had a go years ago, when Jose Mourinho was in charge. He was a real goal for the Nerazzurri," Martina told FCInterNews.
"What happened was that Vidic scored an important goal against Inter in the Champions League.
"Yes (Mourinho would not sign someone who has scored against him), but beyond this episode, it is evident that for the present Italian championship it is really difficult to take top players from abroad."
