Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti is monitoring Carlo Ancelotti's situation at Chelsea. Moratti is considering Rafa Benitez's future after seeing his Inter drop out of the top five following defeat to Chievo Verona yesterday.
Moratti sees the prospect of appointing Ancelotti as Benitez's replacement as a huge political blow for his Rossoneri rivals, which have enjoyed taunting Inter over Zlatan Ibrahimovic's success and the pining of Mario Balotelli, the Manchester City striker, to join Milan.
The Inter president explored the prospect of signing Real Madrid's Kaka as a way to reign in Milan's taunts, but the Brazilian's injury problems made the deal a non-starter.
Instead, Moratti has instructed his intermediaries to reach out to Ancelotti about his situation in London and his interest in taking charge of Inter in 2011.
