Who Follows Jose Mourinho to Inter Milan?


If Jose Mourinho is installed as Inter Milan manager later this week as expected, which players will follow football's pied piper to Milan?

It's already been reported that Frank Lampard is the apple of Mourinho's eye. The Mirror says Mourinho will sign for three years and earn 7 million pounds per season. It's been no secret the affection many of his former Chelsea and Porto players have for the Special One. And precedent has been set that he's not shy about poaching players to establish a foundation at a new locale.

So with that in mind, here's an educated guess at who's coming to Inter if Mourinho is the new boss--and who's leaving?
In:

Frank Lampard
Didier Drogba
Ricardo Carvalho
Ricardo Quaresma
Alexander Hleb
Deco

Out:

Crespo
Figo
Adriano
Recoba
Ibrahimovic
Notice the dearth of Italian talent on either list, in particular the "In" list. An issue? I'd love to hear from Inter fans on whether that matters?

Either way, Mourinho is there through

Inter is short for Internazionale. Italian players don't matter for our club, as long as we beat AC and Juve
