The best news of my summer so far. It is even better that it is a permanent switch and not just a loan. Our defence is as solid as they can get. At left back one or two questions can be asked, but Favalli rarely has a poor game even if he also rarely has a spectacular one. He is solid and that is what we need. Our midfield is very strong and our attack is full of promise. I feel that now, although perhaps not as complete as Milan or Juve we are in with an excellent chance of winning Lo Scudetto.

Inter have finally confirmed the signing of Walter Samuel after he agreed to leave Real Madrid.

The Argentine international has put pen to paper on a four-year contract, which will expire on 30 June 2009, after the two clubs reportedly agreed a £12m transfer fee.

Samuel has been linked with the Nerazzurri for months after failing to settle in Spain since he left Roma last summer.

Samuel, known as ‘The Wall’, was the Italian club’s primary objective to strengthen their defence and a deal has eventually been agreed after weeks of talks.

He is now expected to partner Ivan Cordoba in Roberto Mancini’s rearguard for the new campaign.

"Inter have spent a lot on me and that is not easy in today’s world," the South American told the Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday. "This means that I will have to multiply my work.

"But I know who make up the Inter defence and there is no need for a miracle. We just need to get to know each other."

Samuel is also eager to prove his worth after an unhappy spell in La Liga with the European giants.

"I went there to win but I couldn’t do that," he added. "They didn’t believe in me in Madrid but fortunately I have found Inter who were willing to bet on my future."

Samuel joins former Real teammate Santiago Solari at the club and another friend could soon follow in the shape of Luis Figo.

"Figo has told me that there is a chance that he can come to Inter," the ex-Boca star added. "I hope he arrives because he still has a desire to succeed."

Nice words

Excellent deal Mancio. Is this Moratti's surprise btw? I really thought that the Samuel deal wouldn't happen but now it happened.

Let's hope he finds his Roma form for Inter.

Samuel also comments on his high profile move to the Italian club:

“Inter has spent a lot of money on me and now days teams don’t have that money to waste. In saying so I feel that I have a huge responsibility at Inter and promise to give everything for the club”.

I like it
