Inter seal €7m loan signing of Vrsaljko from Atletico Madrid


 The Serie A side will retain an option to purchase the Croatia international at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

 Vrsaljko joins for a reported initial fee of €7 million (£6m/$8m), with that figure rising to €25m (£22m/$29m) when including the purchase price.

The 26-year-old spent two seasons with Atleti and returns to Serie A following his time at Genoa and Sassuolo.

 Vrsaljko started six of Croatia's seven World Cup matches this summer, including the final, as the Baltic nation finished runners-up in Russia. Inter have found a replacement at right-back for Joao Cancelo, who joined Juventus in a €40 million (£35m/$46m) transfer in June.

  Meanwhile, Atleti moved quickly to find a replacement of their own for Vrsaljko.

 Follioing his exit, the Liga side immediately announced the arrival of Colombia international Santiago Arias from PSV.

 Arias, 26, joins on a five-year deal for a reported €13m (£11.6m/$15.2m) fee after starting all four of Colombia's matches at the World Cup in Russia.
