Transfer News

Inter Milan has confirmed the capture of Uruguay centre back Diego Godin on a free transfer after he left Atletico Madrid at the end of last season. 

Godin has signed a three-year contract worth approximately €6.75 million at San Siro, and the Nerazzurri have confirmed the news via their Twitter account. The 33-year-old is new Inter boss Antonio Conte's first signing since being appointed. 

Following the end of the La Liga season, he joined up with Uruguay for the Copa America, where they were beaten on penalties by Peru in the quarterfinals.

Conte will now shift his focus to acquiring a top class centre forward, with Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku said to be his preference in that regard. Inter will compete in the Champions League next season after sealing a place in the competition on the last day of last season in Serie A.
