MILAN - Inter Milan's Brazilian winger
Mancini joined rivals AC Milan on loan for the rest of the
season on Monday after frosty ties between the two clubs eased.
The former AS Roma player signed for new Inter coach Jose
Mourinho in July 2008 but failed to secure a first team place at
the Italian champions and had been close to joining Marseille
earlier this month.
"AC Milan announce the loan signing of Mancini from Inter,
which includes the right to buy half his registration," a Milan
statement said on the final day of the January transfer window.
Mancini, who has struggled for any sort of form at Serie A
leaders Inter, is likely to act as a deputy for Ronaldinho on
the left of second-placed Milan's front three.
A swap deal involving Milan leftback Marek Jankulovski had
first been mooted despite the clubs recently trading blows after
last month's fractious derby won by Inter, but the Czech looks
set to stay put.
Several players including Ronaldo have played for both clubs
while midfielders Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf signed for
Milan from Inter.
