Official: Murrillo seals Inter switch

The centre-half has put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Nerazzurri, who have paid an initial €8 million for his services

Colombia international Jeison Murillo has completed his move from Granada to Inter.

The centre-half agreed a five-year deal with the Nerazzurri in February, with the Serie A side agreeing to pay an €8 million transfer fee that could rise to €10m depending on bonuses and appearances.

Murillo touched down in Milan on Friday and Inter owner Erick Thohir believes that the 23-year-old will prove a fine addition to Roberto Mancini’s squad.

“Murillo has determination and talent,” the Indonesian told the club’s official website. “He’s a young player with great quality and we’re delighted to announce his arrival at the club.

“I know that Roberto Mancini will be able to get the best out of his abilities, while the fans are sure to love him and his never-say-die attitude. Forza Inter!”

Elsewhere, Inter also announced on Friday that Joel Obi had sealed his switch to Serie A rivals Torino and Zdravko Kuzmanovic had been sold to Basel.

Nigeria international Obi has penned a four-year contract with the Granata, who have reportedly paid €2.4m for the midfielder’s services.

Basel, meanwhile, handed over €2m for Kuzmanovic, who has committed himself to the Swiss champions until 2020.
