Inter: Muntari is the last buy

Recommended Posts

The Ghana international established himself as a key member of Harry Redknapp's side following his Ł7million move from Udinese last summer and helped the Fratton Park side lift the FA Cup in May.

Muntari emerged as a target of new Inter boss Jose Mourinho last week and has now sealed his return to Serie A for an undisclosed fee.

His arrival looks to have ended Mourinho's interest in Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard this summer, with the club insisting that there will be no more new arrivals before the transfer window closes.

Lampard, who has one year remaining on his current Stamford Bridge contract, had been strongly linked with a move to the Giuseppe Meazza, but the Blues rebuffed all offers for the England international.

Inter director Gabriele Oriali said: "Muntari is the last buy.

"Now we will work on trimming the squad because Mourinho wants 22 players and three goalkeepers. There will be some painful goodbyes."

After missing out on Lampard, Mourinho admitted he had no problem with the former West Ham ace electing to remain in London.

He said: "I'm not disappointed in him, the important thing for a player is to do what's best for him.

"If his choice is to stay at Chelsea because he is happier, that's OK with me."
