Former Velez Sarsfield midfielder Ricky Alvarez is thrilled with his move to Inter Milan.
â€śThis is a dream come true for me,â€ť he told Sky Sport Italia after arriving in Italy from Argentina this morning.
â€śIâ€™ve always been an Inter fan, ever since I was a little boy,â€ť added the player who appears on todayâ€™s front page of La Gazzetta dello Sport in an Inter shirt while he was a kid.
â€śI feel ready for this new adventure,â€ť added the 23-year-old uncapped attacking midfielder.
â€śIâ€™m arriving at one of the biggest clubs in the world and I am here to win everything that is on offer.â€ť
The South American is expected to be handed a five-year contract by the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza outfit.
â€śI aspire to be like Zinedine Zidane,â€ť he added. â€śI go to Inter with humility and with ambition.
â€śI will find a lot of Argentines already at the club and they will help me to adapt to my new life, in a championship that is different from the one in Argentina.
â€śI really wanted Inter and I was surprised by how quickly the deal was done.â€ť
