Inter swoop for Dacourt and Brazilian duo

July 12, 2006

ROME, July 12 (Reuters) - Inter Milan have signed French midfielder Olivier Dacourt and Brazilian pair Maicon Douglas Sisenando and Maxwell Scherrer Cabelino Andrade.

Dacourt, 31, comes from AS Roma on a two-year contract.

Defender Maicon, 24, signed from Monaco on a five-year contract and Maxwell, also 24, arrives from Empoli on a four-year deal, Inter said on Wednesday.

Inter finished last season third behind Juventus and local rivals AC Milan.

Their owner Massimo Moratti says Inter should be given the Serie A title if Juventus and AC Milan are found guilty of sporting fraud by a tribunal which is due to deliver its verdict this week.
