Inter coach Jose Mourinho has announced he will leave the club after delivering a historic treble by winning the Champions League in Madrid.
"My Work here is done. I have made history with this club. I will find motivations in another big club. Playing against Barcelona in Spain? That would be a big challenge," he told the Rai Sport after the game.
"I have been very happy at Inter, but not in the world of Italian football because I don't like all the comments from presidents, coaches and papers. But, I will always like Inter.
"I want to thank Italian football because I have become a better coach for it. Now it's time for me to take a day or two to think about a new challenge in another country.
"I have given everything for this team and I feel free to make a decision on my future. I want to become the first coach to win the Champions League with three different clubs, but I have not signed any contract yet."
And, the country and club couldn't have been clearer, especially after waving a goodbye gesture to the Nerazzurri fans inside the Bernabeu with tears rolling down his eyes.
Asked whether he would be joining Real Madrid he told Sat.1: "Yes."

Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will leave Inter to manage Real Madrid after securing the Champions League trophy with the Italian club.
The Portuguese boss has guided Inter to a cup treble this year, including the Champions League, Coppa Italia and Serie A and believes he has gone as far as he can at San Siro.
"My work here is done," he said on RAI television in Italy. "I have made club history. I will leave Inter to find motivations in another big club."
When asked by German station Sat.1 if he would be joining Real Madrid, Mourinho simply answered "yes."
It had been speculated the former Chelsea boss would arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer after Mourinho expressed his desire to one day manage Los Blancos.
Inter's 2-0 victory over Bayern Munich sealed the club's first success in Europe's premier competition for 45 years.
