Diego Milito followed Zanetti’s example and signed a new deal with Inter until 2014.
The current deal was set to expire in 2013. The Argentinean forward was the subject of transfer for clubs like Real Madrid or Manchester City this summer but he decided to pledge his future with Inter.
Milito came at Inter last year from Genoa. The striker scored 30 goals in all competitions for Inter last year and played an important part in the historic treble.

Javier Zanetti, the Inter captain, has signed a new deal which will keep him at San Siro until 2013.
The emblematic captain had a contract that was set to expire in 2011 but he was offered a new deal.
Zanetti came at Inter in 1995 and since then he made over 700 appearences with “The Nerazzurri”. The veteran player has the advantage that he can play on almost every position at midfield or in defence. His leadership qualities, his devotion for the club and not at last his work rate and skills have earned him a new contract.
Most of the Inter fans say that he never had a bad game and indeed that rarely happens.
The 36 years old was not included into Argentina squad for the World Cup by Maradona.
