Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin has agreed to join Serie A giants and former European champions Inter Milan.
Talks had earlier milled from Sky Sports Italia about his agreement to join the Italian side, a suggestion that was quickly put down and completely swept away by publication AS.
He was heavily linked with a move to Man United, who are scouring the market to sign a leadership figure, but they have to look elsewhere to bolster their squad.
Nonetheless, his proposed move appears to now have some weight to it and this time around, Spanish radio Cadena SER–the biggest radio station in the whole of Spain–has confirmed that the player is already locked in a deal to join the Serie A title chasers and has given them his word that he would opt to join them.
More spilling out from the radio station is saying that Godin will join the Nerazzurri for an initial two-year deal,pocketing as much as 5.5 million euros a season, and could consider extending his tenure at the outfit.
Godin was prepared to remain with Diego Simeone’s men, but Atleti have remained mute about extending his stay. Should Godin had remained before shaking hands over his new deal at Inter Milan, his annual income would have toppled that figure offer by Inter Milan.
Since no proposal was on the horizon, despite the 32-year-old keenness to stay put, Godin decided to clutch at the straws and accept the proposal from Italian side Inter Milan this term.
