MILAN – Two transfer operations that had been underway in recent days, along with all the bureaucratic steps, have been concluded by the Inter directors.
Philippe Coutinho, born in 1992, with 28 appearances and 2 goals in the Nerazzurri shirt, was transferred on loan to Espanyol. With the Barcelona club he will have the opportunity to play with more continuity, broadening his experience after the season and a half with Inter - Italian Super Cup, Club World Cup, Coppa Italia - and the victory in the U-20 World Cup in Colombia.
MacDonald Mariga, born in 1987, with 34 appearances and 2 goals in the Nerazzurri shirt from January 2010 to June 2011, has returned from his loan spell with Real Sociedad and will now head to Parma on a co-ownership loan deal with an option for purchase. Mariga had already played with the Gialloblù from August 2007 to January 2010.
