Inter have officially signed Fiorentina left-back Cristiano Biraghi on loan with an option to buy for a reported €12m. The deal was part of a swap that saw Henrique Dalbert move to Fiorentina.
As usual with an Inter deal, the €12m transfer fee will be paid in three installments.
The 26-year-old Biraghi has agreed a five-year contract worth around €2m after tax and will wear the number 34 shirt.
Biraghi began his career in the Inter youth academy, and after some different loan spells he was eventually sold to Pescara for €5m in 2016..
“I am happy to be back home,” he told reporters as he left the club headquarters this evening.
“This lad grew up at Inter, so returning here was his ultimate dream and we did all we could to make it come true,” added agent Mario Giuffredi on TMW.
“Now it’s up to him, he has to work hard and prove he belongs at Inter.”
The defender should be a considerable upgrade on Inter’s left flank than Dalbert was.
