Internazionale president Massimo Moratti has revealed that coach Jose Mourinho has asked the club to sign Porto winger Ricardo Quaresma.

According to ESPN Soccernet however, Morrati insists his club cannot bid for the Portugal international unless they sell one of their players.

The 24-year old Portuguese international has been linked with a move to the San Siro all summer, and Mourinho recently acknowledged that there was still time to complete a deal before the transfer deadline arrives.

Following Inter’s win over Roma in Sunday’s Supercoppa, Mourinho reiterated his belief that Quaresma would be ‘useful’ for his squad.

While Moratti agrees, he insists unless the Nerazzurri sell first they cannot meet Porto’s reported asking price of 25 million euros.

‘Yes, Mourinho asked for Quaresma,’ he told Portuguese newspaper O Jogo. ‘He didn’t ask me but he did ask (sporting director) Marco Branca and (club director) Gabriele Oriali.’

‘There’s no doubt he’d be very useful for our style of play, but Mourinho knows perfectly well that if we don’t sell another player first then we can’t advance with our pursuit of Quaresma.’
