Veteran defender Lucio has left Inter Milan after the final two years of his contract were cancelled by mutual consent.
The 34-year-old Brazilian FIFA World Cup winner joined Inter in 2009 and went on to play 136 matches, scoring five goals and winning one Scudetto, two Coppa Italias, one Super Coppa, the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
"Internazionale announces that the documents relative to the cancellation of Lucio's contract by mutual consent have been deposited in the offices of Lega Serie A," a club statement read.
"Everyone at FC Internazionale wishes Lucio and his family a fond farewell."
Turkish club Fenerbahce was moved to post a statement on its website denying it wanted to sign Lucio.
