thumbnail Hello,

Riccardo Quaresma is on the verge of joining Inter. Porto sporting director Fernando Gomes as well as the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, are in Milan talking with the Nerazzurri, according to Tuttomercatoweb.

The transfer saga has been running all summer, with the Portuguese club reluctant to accept anything less than €27m for the midfielder.

Quaresma doesn’t seem like a part of the Dragoes plans any longer and he is finally on his way.

Tuttomercatoweb claims officials from Porto are currently negotiating with Inter chiefs in Milan as they attempt to bring the drama surrounding Quaresma’s future to an end.

Pele is going to be inserted into the deal and the Nerazzurri are likely to offer Porto between €18m and €20m.

It is believed the deal will be completed and made official later tonight with an announcement from both clubs expected.

Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the midfielder and, after having lost out when it came to Frank Lampard, the ‘Special One’ will not be looking to let Quaresma slip through on this occasion.

The midfield is strong, powerful, quick and he will fit in well the Nerazzurri’s three-man attacking midfield.
