Inter Milan have given up on their bid to sign Frank Lampard from Chelsea this summer and the England midfielder now looks certain to stay at Stamford Bridge.

The Serie A champions, now bossed by former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, had attempted to lure Lampard to the San Siro. But Chelsea flatly refused to sell the midfielder and Inter have now called a halt to their summer spending spree after clinching a deal to sign Sulley Muntari from Portsmouth.

Muntari was announced as an Inter player on Monday and club director Gabriele Oriali said: "Muntari will be our last acquisition, now we must work on reducing the squad as coach Jose Mourinho wants 22 players and three goalkeepers."
