Inter Milan Sign Defensive Duo Ahead Of New Season

Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan have completed the transfers for the defensive duo of Kwadwo Asamoah and Stefan de Vrij ahead of the start of the new season.

Asamoah, 29, has signed a three-year deal with the Nerazzurri after joining on a free transfer from Italian champions Juventus.

On his own part, Stefan de Vrij, 26, has penned a five-year contract with Inter following his free transfer move from fellow Italian side Lazio.

While speaking about his new career move with ESPN, Asamoah said that: “It’s been a tough decision to make, because for six years, Juventus has been my life, and everyone here has been my family.”

“Leaving Juventus is like leaving a family for good but I needed to do this for my family.

“I am leaving with a lot of great memories from the trophies I have won at the club, to some of the greatest players I have worked with on a daily basis.

“Juventus just didn’t change my career and make me a better player, it made me a better man too.” He concluded.

In his six-year spell at Juventus, Kwadwo Asamoah made 156 appearances for the Old Lady winning six league titles and four Coppa Italia titles.

Aside Asamoah and De Vrij, Inter Milan have also signed Matteo Politano and Radja Nainggolan.
