MILAN (Reuters) - Uruguay captain and central defender Diego Godin has joined Cagliari after one season at fellow Serie A side Inter Milan, the Sardinian club said on Thursday.

PSG, Inter Milan or Real Madrid... what's next for Spurs' Dele Alli?
Dele Alli's career is at a crossroads after being shunned by Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho for the last two matches. Sportsmail looks at his options including PSG and Inter MilanThe Spurs midfielder's omission from the squad for Sunday's impressive 5-2 win at Southampton certainly raised eyebrows, just days after Alli was left out of the north Londoners' crucial Europa League win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv.
At club level, Godin is best known for a nine-season stint at Atletico Madrid where he helped form the backbone of the uncompromising side built by Diego Simeone, whose son Giovanni plays as a centre-forward for Cagliari.
He was also an imposing presence at the heart of the Inter defence as they finished second in Serie A last season with the best defensive record in the league.
There was no obvious reason why Inter wanted to let him go, although Italian media reported they were trying to cut their wage bill to fund new signings for coach Antonio Conte.
Cagliari, who won their only Serie A title in 1970, finished 14th in the standings last season after a suffering a form slump in January and February.
