Kondogbia completes Inter switch

22 June 2015, 20:45

Milan - French international Geoffrey Kondogbia has completed his move from Monaco to Inter Milan, signing a five-year deal with the Serie A club after snubbing city rivals AC Milan at the 11th hour.

Kondogbia completed his medical with Inter on Monday morning, after which a club official told AFP: "He will be unveiled to fans after 5p.m. this evening in Milan."

Inter have yet to publish an official statement although the club's Twitter feed showed a picture of Kondogbia in a club shirt with a short message confirming his signature: "Contracts signed with Monaco for the transfer of Geoffrey Kondogbia."

The 22-year-old Frenchman, who spent two seasons at Monaco after joing the Ligue 1 club from Sevilla, is expected to earn four million euros ($4.5m, 2.9m) a season plus bonuses after making a last-gasp decision to snub AC Milan.

Monaco are expected to receive a fee believed to be in the region of 35m euros.

Milan CEO Adriano Galliani said Sunday he believed he had tied up Kondogbia's move to the seven-time European champions.

However Inter flew in with a late, improved offer which appeared to sway the player and his representatives.

The marauding midfielder, who has been compared to retired French international Patrick Vieira, had also been linked with a move to Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Juventus after showcasing his talents last season when Monaco reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
