[Mercato] Acquafresca out, Milito in at Inter

Inter have signed Diego Milito from Genoa with Italy Under-21 striker Robert Acquafresca moving in the opposite direction.

Diego MilitoArgentinian international forward Milito, 30, has agreed a four-year deal with the Nerazzurri, who now have Serie A's two most prolific scorers on their books as they seek to cement their recent dominance in Italy.

The man known as 'El Príncipe' struck 24 goals in 31 Serie A games last season, just one fewer than the man likely to be his new strike partner, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Milito will line up in the UEFA Champions League group stage this coming campaign while for Acquafresca, a makeweight in the deal, it will be domestic issues after UEFA Europa League hopefuls Genoa loaned him out to Atalanta for the season.

The 21-year-old scored 14 goals on loan at Cagliari last term and found the net three times for Italy in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship finals in Sweden.
