Following the completion of his medical exam in Milan, Croatian international Sime Vrsaljko officially signed with Inter Milan Wednesday.

The right back will join the Nerazzurri on a one-year loan from Atletico Madrid. Inter will pay €6.5 million for the loan with a €17 million option to purchase next summer.

Vrsaljko played two seasons with Atletico. Prior to moving to Spain, he had stints with Sassuolo and Genoa.

During his time with Atletico, Vrsaljko had just 54 appearances in two seasons, but did manage to garner a Europa League title with Los Colchoneros.

His time to shine definitely came during the 2018 World Cup where he helped lead Croatia to the finals where they were defeated by France. During that time, he had significant playing time with fellow Nerazzurri Ivan Perisic and Marcelo Brozovic.

Vrsaljko becomes the seventh signing for Inter during the summer transfer window. They have already picked up Lautaro Martinez, Stefan De Vrij, Kwadwo Asamoah, Radja Nainggolan, Matteo Politano and Federico Dimarco (from FC Sion).

Inter has sent out Geoffrey Kondogbia (to Valencia), Davide Santon (to Roma), Federico Valietti (to Genoa), Davide Bettella (to Atalanta), Éder (to JS Suning), Marco Carraro (to Atalanta), Jens Odgaard (to Sassuolo), Nicoló Zaniolo (to Roma), Yuto Nagatomo (to Galatasaray), Francesco Bardi (to Frosinone), Tommaso Equizi (to Levico Terme on free transfer), Andrea Cagnano (to Pistoiese on loan), Mattia Bonetto (to Reggina), Axel Bakayoko (to FC St. Gallen on loan), Andrei Radu (to Genoa on loan), Francesco Forte (to Wassl.-Beveren), Rey Manaj (to Albacete on loan), Michele Di Gregorio (to Avellino on loan), Zé Turbo (to Newell’s), Davide Costa (to Rieti), Rigoberto Rivas (to Ternana on loan), Vincenzo Tommasone (to Rieti on loan), Filippo Sgarbi (to Perugia), Samuele Longo (to SC Huesca on loan), Lorenzo Tassi (to Arezzo on loan).
