Jose Mourinho's arrival had placed Oriali's position at the club in doubt, but after talks with president Massimo Moratti this week, it was agreed he would remain involved with Inter's transfer plans and scouting. However, his work on the training pitch will be decided by Mourinho.

Meanwhile, Mourinho met with Inter directors yesterday and gave the green light to continue negotiations for Roma winger Amantino Mancini and Genoa's Abdoulay Konko.
