According to Milano based Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have given up on their pursuit of signing Porto’s Hector Herrera on a free transfer when his contract expires in June.
According to the report Herrera now seems to be a more important target for Milan and Roma, but not so much for Inter.
“From what has happened in the past few hours, Herrera is one of the names that is highlighted in Leonardo’s notebook. Milan would like the player now but Porto do not intend on letting him go and instead would only be willing to let him go in the Summer. The player also has no interest in pushing for an early move as he will become a free agent in June and will be able to request a salary higher than his current one which is at €2.1 million net.”
The report then goes on to discuss the interest that the player has drawn.
“Considering the fact that this will be a no transfer fee operation, the player has a number of suitors. In Italy, AC Milan and Roma will go head to head for the player’s signature. This is a battle that could drag on for the next few months, and it is a battle that Inter has pulled out of.”
