Co-ownership deals for players are common practice in Italy, and both Serie A clubs had a share in the 27-year-old creative midfielder. Roma will pay Inter a further 5.7 million euros over a three-year period for full ownership of Pizarro.

Inter signed Pizarro from Udinese for the start of the 2005/06 season, but the Chilean failed to hold down a regular place in the team. Pizarro joined Roma last summer after the club agreed to pay Inter an estimated 6.5 million euros.

Pizarro was an influential figure in Roma's second-placed finish in Serie A last season and helped the club reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
