Romanian defender Cristian Chivu has announced his retirement with immediate effect.
The 33-year-old had been unable to appear for Inter Milan this season because of a foot injury.
His contract at the San Siro was not due to expire until the summer, but the two parties have reached an agreement for it to be terminated early.
"After seven seasons, Inter and Cristian Chivu announce the mutual termination of the contract between the Romanian defender and the Nerazzurri," read a statement on the club's official website.
"The club wishes to thank Cristian for his great strength, loyalty and the key role he played in his years that will always be remembered as among some of the most glorious in Inter's history. Inter wishes to send a warm thanks to the player, as well as his wonderful family, for all he has done for the club."
It is now expected that the former Ajax and Roma player will become an agent.
