Mancini go to Intermilan..

Italian champions FC Internazionale Milano unveiled AS Roma's Brazilian midfielder Mancini as José Mourinho's first signing this afternoon.

Four-year contract
The 27-year-old, whose contract with Roma had just one more season to run, penned a four-year deal after the clubs agreed a fee of €12.5m. Having moved to Italy from CA Mineiro in 2002 with Serie B side AC Venezia, Mancini joined Roma a year later and went on to score 40 goals in 154 top-flight appearances. The new signing said: "Our dream is to win Serie A and the UEFA Champions League. With the squad we have, everything is possible. I had five fabulous years at Roma but my first impressions of Inter are also very positive. I have just met Mourinho. We have both arrived in Milan to achieve something special for Inter."

Bolzoni extends
Meanwhile, 19-year-old midfielder Francesco Bolzoni has renewed his contract with the Nerazzurri until 2012. Having joined Inter's youth system when he was eleven, Bolzoni made his first team debut in February 2007 in the Coppa Italia semi-final against UC Sampdoria. He did not play in Serie A last term but appeared twice in the UEFA Champions League against PSV Eindhoven. In November 2007 he made his debut with Italy Under-21, becoming the second youngest player ever to play at that level for his country. Under Mourinho, who replaced Roberto Mancini as coach in June, Inter will return to the UEFA Champions League group stage in September.
