Cruzeiro midfielder Nilton on Inter Milan shopping listNilton previously played for Vasco da Gama
Cruzeiro midfielder Nilton has moved closer to a move to Europe with Italian giants Inter Milan for a fee reported to be in the region of €5.5 million, according to press releases in the Brazilan media.
Nilton, 27, has only spent one season at the reigning national champions, but is said to have impressed suitably to warrant a big money transfer.
He is set to earn over €50,000 per week on a four-year contract at the Nerazzuri and will join compatriot Hernanes, who moved to Milan from Lazio in January for over €20 million.
Yet to be capped for Brazil, Nilton's stock would rise with a move to Europe and international honours would potentially follow suit.
