Diego Godin 'deposited' Inter contract

Outgoing Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin’s three-year contract with Inter has reportedly been deposited with Serie A authorities.

The Uruguayan defender is out of contract this summer and confirmed his departure from the Spanish capital would come at the end of this season.

Report claims the 33-year-old will put pen to paper in Milan on a deal worth an annual wage of €6.75m and Corriere dello Sport say he agreed to join Inter at the start of the year.

The Uruguayan was able to negotiate with clubs outside of Spain as he had entered the final six months of his deal at Los Rojiblancos.

“Now I have more nerves than for any match,” Godin told his Atleti farewell press conference on Tuesday.

“These are my final days at Atletico, this has been more than a club for me, they have been a family, my home and a way of life.”

Cadena Ser have previously claimed the Uruguayan defender will join the Nerazzurri on a two-year deal with the option of a third, worth an annual wage of €5.5m.

Godin has spent nine years with Los Rojiblancos and made 381 first-team appearances.

Juanfran Torres, Filipe Luis and Godin are all out of contract at Los Rojiblancos, while fellow defender Lucas Hernandez has already joined Bayern Munich.

The depositing of contracts with Serie A before the summer is commonplace for Bosman free transfers.
