Madrid:

Santiago Solari left Real Madrid for Inter Milan on a three-year contract. Madrid gave no details of the fee it will receive for Solari, who signed a four-year contract to stay in Spain in January. The midfielder will say goodbye to his teammates when Madrid resumes training after a month's break and will then give a news conference, the club said on its Web site. Inter recently said it is also interested in signing Madrid defender Walter Samuel, although the clubs have yet to agree to financial terms. Goal scorer Solari struggled to make Madrid's starting lineup since arriving from neighbor Atletico in 2000 but became a fan favorite by coming off the bench to score some spectacular goals. Solari, who also played for Argentina's Newell's Old Boys and River Plate, won two league titles with Madrid as well as appearing in the Champions League final victory in 2002. Madrid is revamping its squad this summer after failing to win a major trophy the last two seasons. The club picked up Uruguay internationals Carlos Diogo and Pablo Garcia last Friday, and is hoping to sign Brazil forward Robinho from Santos. (AP)
