Mourinho said: "Inter have won in recent years. We're a team that knows the taste of victory, it wants to win again. The President and the club are ambitious.
"An important part of the squad ends a cycle and therefore for the future we had to think about some changes. I'm sorry to see players like Figo and Crespo leave, but we must look to the future and this is why we thought of Milito and Motta."
