Despite their strained relationship, the city rivals might do business in the transfer market…
According to Sky Sport Italia, Serie A giants Inter and Milan are mulling over a swap loan deal involving out-of-favour Nerazzurri winger Amantino Mancini and Rossoneri left-back Marek Jankulovski.
The transaction could be completed before the transfer market shuts down on Monday night, and it could help soothe tensions between the two clubs following last Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina.
Inter won the match 2-0 and a bitter war of words ensued after Beneamata boss Jose Mourinho lamented that the Diavoli had received special treatment from referee Gianluca Rocchi, who controversially reduced the champions to 10 men midway through the first half by sending off Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder for dissent.
Inter are in the hunt for a left-back after Romanian international Cristian Chivu was ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a fractured skull.
And they have pinpointed Jankulovski, who has slipped down the pecking order this term under Leonardo and is currently playing second fiddle to Luca Antonini.
Mancini has been similarly on the fringes of the Inter squad so far and a mooted move to French side Olympique Marseille collapsed earlier this month.
