Makinwa: I'll join Inter on Monday Saturday 25 June, 2005


Nigerian sensation Stephen Makinwa has told a television station that he expects to be wearing the Inter jersey by Monday.

Nigerian sensation Stephen Makinwa has told a television station that he expects to be wearing the Inter jersey by Monday.

“I hope that my move to the Nerazzurri is completed on Monday,” said the striker. “I am very happy to have reached this stage of negotiations so quickly.”


The 21-year-old has made quite an impact on Serie A since joining Atalanta in the January transfer window, scoring six goals that almost saved them from relegation, and is still co-owned by the Bergamo club and Genoa.


He had been heavily linked with Milan and Palermo, but his friendship with fellow Nigerian Obafemi Martins (pictured) proved to be the key.


“I chose Inter because it is my dream to play for a big club where I can challenge for the Champions’ League and Scudetto. Besides, I’ll have no problem settling in if I can hook up with my good friend Martins.”


However, with so many strikers already at Roberto Mancini’s disposal and his similarity in style to Martins, it is possible that Makinwa will be loaned out to gain some more top flight experience.


“Nobody has spoken to me about spending time at another club,” assured the former Modena hitman. “As far as I can see, that isn’t going to be an issue.”
