Real Madrid midfielder Guti keen on Inter Milan move

Real Madrid midfielder Guti seems closer to leaving the Bernabeu after admitting he would love to experience life in another country - with Italy top of his wishlist. Guti has had a troubled season with the Spanish giants and, before last weekend's game against Real Mallorca, had not played for over two months amid reports of a bust-up with coach Manuel Pellegrini.

Both coach and player have always insisted his absence was down to injury and Guti slammed journalists who suggested otherwise during a tense press conference earlier this week.

The 33-year-old has spent his entire career at Madrid after coming through their youth academy but admits that now could be time for a change.

"I would like to end my contract at Real Madrid but it is also true that I would love to be able to play for another team," Guti told Canal+. "To be able to enjoy another culture, to be able to enjoy another life, other team-mates, another league."

Tottenham and Bolton have been linked with the Spain international, whose contract is up at the end of the season. Inter Milan are also interested and, when asked about the Italian giants, Guti did not hide his enthusiasm.

"I would go there with open arms," he said. "It is a great club. I have great friends there, Samuel Eto'o and Wesley Sneijder. I think it's a team that can aspire to everything.

"The truth is that it is one of my best options, if it could be real. It is true that I've had a very nice time at Real Madrid, that Madrid is a city where I wanted to live all my life, and now I want to leave Madrid.

"It's like a contradiction, but I want to be able to get out of Madrid, to be able to be in another country, in another city and to be able to enjoy other things."
