Inter Have Signed An Argentinean Wonderkid Without Anyone Realising

Just when we thought we'd reported on all the major transfer business of the summer when the transfer window SLAMMED SHUT on 31st August, it turns out Internazionale slipped another deal through that barely anyone noticed.

The Serie A giants have completed the signing of 17-year-old Boca Juniors forward Facundo Colidio in a deal worth £5.4 million.

The Argentinean youngster has signed a three-year deal at the San Siro, with Inter releasing an official statement confirming their capture of the Boca starlet.

The statement, released on Inter's official website, read, "FC Internazionale Milano can announce that international clearance has been received for the permanent transfer of the 17-year-old Facundo Colidio. The Argentine forward has signed a three-year contract with the Nerazzurri and joined Stefano Vecchi's Primavera side."

Colidio was considered to be one of Boca's brightest prospects, but is now training with Inter's Primavera side.

Football Italia initially reported in July that Colidio would remain with Boca until he turns 18 in January, however plans clearly changed, with Colidio already training with the Italian giants.

Given Colidio's potential, it's somewhat surprising that this deal sailed under the radar for so much of the summer.

The 17-year-old has represented Argentina at U17 level, scoring twice recently in a match against Peru.
