Inter Milan are ready to finance Christian Vieri's proposed move to Atletico Madrid.

Atletico have been contacted by Inter about taking on Vieri for next season and its understood the Italian giants have assured them they are prepared to cover a major part of the striker's wages to move him offshore.

Vieri has already spoken with Atletico chief Miguel Angel Gil about a return to his old club and is keen to see the deal happen.

The stumbling block is the Italian's mega 6 million salary - which Atletico are hoping Inter are prepared to cover a large percentage of to convince the striker to quit the club a year out from the expiration of his current deal.

The other problem for Atletico is Vieri's age. At 32, his signing would be a gamble, but Inter's offer is now on the table and it is up to Atletico's board to decide if they want to bring the fans' favourite back to Madrid for a swansong next season.
