Inter Secure Loan Deal For Croatian Defender Vrsaljko

Italian Serie A giants inter Milan have completed the loan signing of Croatian defender Srme Vrsaljko from Atletico Madrid.

Inter Milan will pay a one-year loan fee of €7m for the right back with the option to buy for €18m at the end of the 2018/19 season.

The 26-year-old returns to Italy after spending two years with Atletico Madrid.

Srme Vrsaljko previously played for Sassuolo and Genoa before his move to Spain.

He is expected to replace Spanish defender Joao Cancelo who left Inter Milan for Italian champions Juventus earlier this summer in a deal worth €40m.

The defender was an ever-present for Croatia as he featured in six of seven games to help the small European nation surprisingly reach the final of the recently concluded FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
