Lisandro LOPEZ has joined Italian club Inter.
Benfica’s towering centreback has joined Serie A giants Inter, following a medical on Monday. Inter have signed the Argentinian on loan until the end of the season with an option to buy.

Lisandro LOPEZ speaks about Inter move:
“To play for a club such as Inter who are one of the biggest in Europe is a dream which means a lot for me. I’ve come here to give a hand to the team, to help it reach its objectives. There have been a lot of Argentines at Inter. Among others, SAMUEL, ZANETTI and MILITO come to mind and they’re all players who’ve made history. I hope to do well too. I used to follow Serie A and it’s one of the best leagues in the world for me. It’s very tactical, very competitive and I’ll look to give my all and learn day by day.”
