Inter confirm Godin signing

Inter Milan have confirmed the signing of former Atlético Madrid defender Diego Godín on a three-year deal.

Godín, 33, announced in May he would be leaving Atlético after nine seasons with the LaLiga giants.

The Uruguay international's expected move to San Siro was confirmed by Inter on Monday.

"FC Internazionale Milano announces that a contract has been agreed with Diego Godín that will run until 30 June 2022," a statement from Inter read.

Joins Inter having established himself as Atlético legend

Godín became an Atlético great after joining the club from Villarreal in 2010.

He won LaLiga, a Copa del Rey and two Europa Leagues with Atlético, while reaching two Champions League finals.

Godín joins an Inter side looking to rebuild under Antonio Conte, having finished fourth in Serie A last season but 21 points behind champions Juventus.
