Inter have completed the loan capture of Fredy Guarin from Porto. “He’s a great player,” said boss Claudio Ranieri.
The Nerazzurri have deposited the Colombian’s contract with the Lega Calcio after he touched down in Italy yesterday.
The midfielder has arrived on a €1m loan deal and they’ll have the option to buy him outright in the summer for €11m.
“Guarin is a player that I like,” stated Ranieri. “He has an important physical presence, quality and I think he’ll give us a helping hand.
“He’s just what we need.
“Now we just need time to ensure that he gets back into form. We hope to have him with us soon so he can begin to adapt to our football and give what we want from him.”
While the South American comes in, Inter are close to selling Thiago Motta to Paris Saint-Germain for €10m.
