Pereira completes Inter switch

The 26-year-old winger, who can also play at left-back, has

agreed a four-year contract at the San Siro.

The Nerazzurri made no secret of their pursuit of the Uruguay

international, confirming their approach with an interview posted

on their offical website on Friday.

And a statement released on inter.it this evening read: “Alvaro

Pereira is officially an Inter player.

“The relevant documents have been lodged with the Serie A for

the permanent transfer of the Uruguayan player from Porto.

“Pereira has signed a four-year contract.”

After joining the Dragoes from Cluj in 2009, Pereira was part of

Andre Villas-Boas’ Europa League winning team in 2011, also

claiming two Portuguese league championships and six domestic

cups.

Pereira links up with countrymen Fredy Guarin and Walter Gargano

in Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni’s new-look squad.
