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