Top Five January Transfers Including Manchester United And Chelsea Signings

5. Hernanes (Lazio to Inter Milan)


In one of the biggest deals on deadline day, Inter Milan strengthened their midfield by signing Brazilian international Hernanes from Serie A rivals Lazio. The 28-year-old penned a contract four and half year deal with the Nerazzurri, joining the San Siro outfit for an undisclosed fee.

Speaking to the reporters, Hernanes said, “It was a difficult choice because the Lazio fans showed me they really loved me. I couldn’t sleep last night; it was a difficult day for me. I will always carry these fans in my heart. I knew they loved me, but I couldn’t imagine how much.”

The Brazilian played 156 games for Lazio in all competitions and scored 41 goals during his three-and-a-half-year stay in Rome, which yielded a Coppa Italia triumph in 2013. He has represented Brazil 23 times, notching two goals and lifting the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup. He is indeed a great player who is known for his cracking long ranger goals. Good business from Inter Milan.
