The 32-year-old Argentinian, whose deal at San Siro was set to expire in 2015, has put pen to paper on an extension that keeps him with Inter until June 30, 2016.

Palacio has scored 36 goals in 60 appearances for the Nerazzurri since leaving Genoa two years ago, with a third of those goals arriving this season as fifth-placed Inter battle Napoli and Fiorentina for a Champions League place.

A statement published on Inter's official website described Palacio as "a reference point for the team and a champion beloved by the fans" who is "tireless and generous to his team-mates but capable of great solo efforts".

There were fears among Inter fans in recent weeks he would be tempted to cut his stay in Milan short this summer to return to his homeland amid interest from former club Boca Juniors.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
