May 24, 2010 17:04 IST

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho's move to Real Madrid has caused panic at top Premier League clubs, as he has set his sights on certain players.

Chelsea's Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole and Liverpool stars Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres are reportedly on the short list.

Jose MourinhoMourinho, who led Inter Milan to Champions League glory on Saturday night, will be handed a 100 million pound kitty to make Real Madrid Europe's top club.

He will sign a four-year deal with the Spanish giants worth eight million pounds a year, plus hefty bonuses for winning La Liga and the Champions League, The Sun reports.

The former Chelsea boss also has close links with Michael Essien and goalkeeper Petr Cech from the club he left in 2007.

Mourinho is a huge admirer of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, while Arsenal striker Robin van Persie and Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor are also potential targets.

Diego Milito, Inter's two-goal Champions League final hero against Bayern Munich, could follow Mourinho to Madrid, along with playmaker Wesley Sneijder and keeper Julio Cesar.
