Moratti welcomes Forlan and more

Diego Forlan is set to complete his transfer to Inter on Monday and Massimo Moratti reveals “we could make some other signings too.”

Atletico Madrid have already left the striker out of their Europa League and Liga games over the past week, confirming he is effectively no longer their player.

It is reported the Uruguayan is discussing unpaid wages with Atletico worth around €4m.

“Things are going well for Forlan,” President Moratti told Inter Channel. “He is resolving a few things with his club and I think we'll complete the move soon. As for Juraj Kucka, he will be with us next season.”

The negotiations with Genoa for Kucka were expected to bring in Rodrigo Palacio as well, but those talks have hit problems.

“Palacio is very expensive, so I doubt anything will happen. As for Mauro Zarate and Carlos Tevez, at the moment there are no opportunities for them.”

It's suggested Inter offered €5m for Palacio, but Genoa want at least double that for the Argentine striker.

“A lot will depend on the needs of the Coach, but from here to the end of August there are many options,” continued Moratti.

“We could therefore make some other signings too.”
