FC Internazionale have signed Real Madrid CF midfield player Esteban Cambiasso on a free transfer.
The 23-year-old Argentinian has signed a four-year deal with the Italian side after leaving deposed Spanish champions Madrid on a free transfer. Having spent eight years on the books at the Santiago Bernabéu, his contract at the club finally expired on 30 June.
Cambiasso came to the Bernabéu with his brother in 1996 and spent two seasons in the reserve team before being farmed out to gain experience in Argentina with CA Independiente and then CA River Plate. He was restored to Madrid's first team by Vicente Del Bosque for their title-winning 2002/03 campaign.
However with a surplus of midfield players competing for first-team places at Madrid, Cambiasso saw his chances of making a mark at the club diminish over the past 12 months and Madrid allowed the player to walk free from the club after his contract expired.
