Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho has cast doubt on plans to land Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

"This season? I don't think so," said the Special One. "Why won't he? Well, it's not because we don't want him to, but I'm sure Chelsea and Chelsea's officials don't want to sell him.

"However for the next season it will be easier for him to join me at Inter.

"I'm 100 per cent sure in 2009/2010 he will be playing here."
