Moratti convinced Inter Milan now stronger for Eto'o sale

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti believes they're stronger for the sale of Samuel Eto'o.

The cash raised from Eto'o's move to Anzhi has been spent on signing Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan and Lazio's Mauro Zarate.

"In my view, and I say that as a fan, we have a very strong and interesting squad. There are some new players to be discovered and that is part of football that excites me. We also have many tactical options open to us, so I think it has certainly been a positive summer," said Moratti.

"Gian Piero Gasperini wanted a wide attacker, so Zarate is certainly closer to that style. It is important to have a side that gives the midfield and defence security, so we can then be more spectacular in attack.

"Forlan is one of those champions who makes the fans dream, while Wesley Sneijder stayed with Inter because he wanted to.

"I was optimistic a few days ago, but now we have completed the squad, I'm even more so."
