Inter Milan sign Real Madrid's Solari

Inter Milan have signed Argentina midfielder Santiago Solari from Real Madrid.
Solari agreed a three-year contract with the Serie A side after passing a medical in Milan, said Real in a statement on Thursday.
Spanish media said Solari, who agreed a new four-year deal with Real in January, would move for a nominal fee because a clause in his contract allowed him freedom to leave if he did not complete a set number of games with the Madrid club.
Solari, who joined Real from city rivals Atletico Madrid in 2001, made only 11 league starts last season and spent most of his time on the bench.
Inter have long been admirers of the versatile Argentine and tried to include him as part of the deal which took Brazil striker Ronaldo to Real in 2002.
