Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has denied he's held talks with Inter president Massimo Moratti in Milan.

Spokesman Eladio Parames was quoted as confirming the news: "It's true, Mourinho and (agent Jorge) Mendes were in Milan.

"They left Lisbon yesterday and in the afternoon met the Inter President. Where? I cannot confirm that detail, but there was a meeting and I can assure you it was very positive."

However, the former Chelsea boss has now come out to quash these increasingly strong rumours.

"I say categorically it is not true that I went to Milan, that I met with Massimo Moratti," said Mourinho in an official statement. "It is just false to say that I am on the point of signing a contract with Inter Milan."
