Goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio is happy to be making the move from Inter to Monza on a permanent basis now that his club have reached Serie A.

Speaking to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport in an interview published in today’s print edition, Di Gregorio gave the view that joining the newly-promoted side for good is the right move for him at this stage of his career.

Di Gregorio was on loan from the Nerazzurri at Monza last season, and he managed to help the Lombard team to the Italian top flight in the second attempt.

As part of the 25-year-old’s loan deal, Monza would buy him on a permanent basis in the event that they reached Serie A, and so he is now set to become a Monza player, ending his time with the Nerazzurri.

The move seems to have worked out well for all parties involved, with Inter bringing in a good fee for a player from their youth ranks whilst Monza have a goalkeeper they can rely on in the top flight and the player has the chance to be an important player for a Serie A club.

“I’ve felt incredible happy since Sunday,” he said, referring to Monza’s progression in the promotion final against Pisa, “the love from our fans has been beautiful. These are unforgettable moments.”

Of Monza’s permanent purchase of him, Di Gregorio said that “There was a clause that we all agreed on a year ago and I’m very happy to be signed upon promotion, having succeeded on the pitch.”

“I couldn’t ask for anything better,” he added, “this was the best possible option and it’s been successful.”
