Inter loans Uruguay forward Recoba to Torino

Inter loans Uruguay forward Recoba to Torino

Alvaro Recoba will move to Torino on loan for the rest of the season, Inter Milan said Friday.
Torino will reportedly pay Inter euro500,000 (US$680,000) for the Uruguay forward, who is under contract with Inter through the 2008-09 season.
In 261 appearances for Inter, Recoba has scored 72 goals. He was also loaned to Venezia for the second half of the 1998-99 season after joining Inter in 1997.
At Torino, Recoba will join an attack featuring Sasa Bjelanovic and Nicola Ventola, another former Inter player.
The move means struggling striker Adriano will likely remain with Inter. The club had floated the idea of loaning out Adriano but the Brazil forward resisted, saying he either wants to stay or leave on a full transfer.
Friday is the last day of the current transfer period.
