Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has warned Real Madrid and other clubs that Diego Milito is not for sale.

Reports in Italy claimed the Argentina striker could follow Inter coach Jose Mourinho to the Spanish capital this summer.

Mourinho is set to join Real Madrid this week after two seasons in charge of the Nerazzurri.

"I only say one thing, there's a difference between Milito and our coach, Mourinho," Moratti told the club's official website www.inter.it.

"Mourinho has a clause in his contract by which if the clause is exercised, he can leave.

"However, Milito doesn't and hence, the discussion is over."

Milito was one of the players brought in last summer after Zlatan Ibrahimovic departed for Barcelona. The 30-year-old has been key to Inter's historic treble-winning campaign.

The Argentina international scored the two goals in Saturday's Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich in Madrid.

His effort added to a terrific season as he had scored the only goals in Inter's Coppa Italia final triumph over Roma, and in the club's Scudetto-clinching season finale at Siena.

Milito also nodded in a vital goal in the first leg of Inter's Champions League semi-final with Barcelona that the Italians won 3-1.

The South American is under contract with the Italian champions until June 2013.
