Inter confirm Muntari signing

Inter confirm Muntari signing

Inter have confirmed the signing of Sulley Muntari on their official site - for a fee believed to be around £11m - with him signing a 4-year contract with the Italian champions.

The Ghanaian has great ability that will be hard to replace, and we will not be able to replace this, we will simply have to make do with what we have or hope that Harry Redknapp can pull something out of the hat - either way I feel we will manage, and as said this was a deal that we could not refuse - assuming we are reinvesting this money...

I will not go over my thoughts again, as I have basically said all I had to in this article the other day - Muntari: Tough call, but the right one...

Muntari may well go on to be a world-beater, for Jose Mourinho to want him he must be something special, but to be fair this is a move that he also wanted.

Time will tell if the right thing has been done, I suspect that people will be divided on this matter but players come and go all the time, this is something that as fans we must be used to by now.

I wish Muntari all the very best for the future and thank him for providing me with one of the greatest memories I think I will ever have in my life, seeing us beat Manyoo at Old Trafford thanks to his penalty - what a great day that was!

Well said Rug. He came, he helped us win the cup & he went back to Italy. Still good business all round & a chance for others to fill his boots alongside Diarra. Good luck Sulley & thank you.

A great little player. He looks so smooth and comfortable when on the ball. Gutted to see him leave the PL.

He provided a steel that will be hard to replace. If Sulley wanted to go then fair enough, but if this was wheeler dealing for the sake of freeing up some cash then I think it was a poor piece of business. Jose M. must be creaming his pants.

Here here Tony - Move on. Although a good player was he a player who fitted in the PL?

He was not that good he certainly was not worth £11m and I don't hear you complaining about the price I think you know deep down that he was never going to settle in the Premiership. I think its a poor signing to by Jose's standards.

well 007, some might say it was the other way round. Mark my words. Muntari will be valued up there with the best in the next couple of years.

Fair play, the deal suited everyone! We get £12m for a decent enough, not breath-taking player. Muntari gets a move back to Italy to join the champions. Nothing against the player who played a key part in our amazing season , many previous players would have bottled that penalty against Man Utd but good luck sulley u will be remerbered for that pen and aston villa goals gd luck m8. COME BACK IN THE FUTURE !!! lol

Vital View - League 2, 25th-26th March 2017

With Doncaster and Plymouth yet to play Portsmouth took advantage to close the gap and extend it on the chasing pack. Newport & Leyton Orient look likely to be relegated.

With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
