Official: Inter Sign Muntari

Inter have officially completed the signing of Portsmouth midfielder Sulley Muntari for a fee believed to be in the region of €14m.
The Nerazzurri have been looking for a new centre midfielder all summer, and their primary target had been Chelsea’s Frank Lampard.

However, over the past week or so a deal for the former West Ham man became more and more unlikely, which prompted Inter to turn towards Sulley Muntari instead.

Inter have now officially completed the signing of the Ghanaian, and are believed to have paid a fee in the region of €14m.     Muntari will be unveiled as an Inter player this morning and will now resume his Serie A career.

The 23-year-old played for Udinese between 2002 and 2007 before signing for Portsmouth last year, impressing in his only season at the club, and winning the FA Cup.

Muntari becomes Inter’s second major signing of the summer, following the capture of Roma’s Brazilian winger Amantino Mancini a few weeks ago.

Portsmouth may now use the money from this sale to launch a significant bid for Chelsea benchwarmer Shaun Wright-Phillips.
