Diego Forlan is joining Inter Milan after Atletico Madrid agreed to sell the Uruguay striker to the Serie A club.

Financial terms of the deal were not announced.

Forlan will fill the vacant striker spot left after Samuel Eto'o's departure for Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala. The former Manchester United player says ''it's not every day you get the chance to play for Inter Milan at 32.''

Forlan, who was named best player at last year's World Cup in South Africa after Uruguay reached the semifinals, spent four seasons at Atletico and helped it to European Supercup and Europa League triumphs.

He had two years remaining on his Atletico deal with reports suggesting he has agreed to a two-year deal with the Italian club.
