The 2003–04 season started well for Inter, but after six average games, manager Héctor Cúper was fired from Inter and Corrado Verdelli took over. Following the new manager appointment and having sustained an injury, Bréchet was featured for only a few more games. In total, Bréchet played nine games for Inter. Inter informed him that he could leave the club. In 2004, Bréchet signed a contract with Real Sociedad.

In June 2008, Bréchet left the club and moved to PSV Eindhoven.
