Cagliari sign Diego Godin from Inter on a three-year deal

Cagliari have confirmed the signing of experienced centre-back Diego Godin from Inter on a free transfer.

Godin, 34, leaves Inter after one year and has signed a three-year deal with the Sardinian club.

He has chosen to wear the number two shirt.

After nine seasons with Atletico Madrid, where he became one of Europe’s best defenders, Godin moved to Serie A last year.

He made 36 appearances in all competitions for Inter, but they were willing to let him go.

Godin struggled to adapt to Antonio Conte’s system and Inter decided to offload his €5m-per-season salary.

His departure was also necessary to free a non-EU spot for Arturo Vidal, who joined Inter this week.

Godin will bring a wealth of experience to Eusebio Di Francesco’s Cagliari side, who started the new season with a 1-1 draw at Sassuolo.

The centre-back has made almost 550 appearances at club level and is the most-capped player in Uruguay’s history (135 matches).
