Milan:

Luis Figo has agreed to join Inter Milan, ending a five-year spell at Real Madrid, news reports said. He was expected to undergo medical examinations with Inter in Milan before the signing was officially announced, Italian newspapers reported. Figo, whose contract with Madrid was to expire in June 2006, wanted a two-year contract comparable to the $7.4 million deal he reportedly had at the Spanish club. Reports indicated that Inter had signed him to a $8.62 million deal over two seasons and that the move did not include a transfer fee. "I chose this club because it has the same desire to win that I have," Figo was quoted as saying in Thursday's Corriere della Sera. The move makes Figo the third Madrid player Inter has signed this offseason, following Santiago Solari and Walter Samuel. A former European and world player of the year, Figo chose Inter over Champions League winner Liverpool, which also courted the Portugal star. (AP)
