Inter Milan and Porto were both irked when news outlets leaked the scheduled medical of Mehdi Taremi, albeit for different reasons.

The 31-year-old’s summer move to the Nerazzurri is no longer a hidden secret.

The Italian giants have been working to secure an agreement with the Iran international for several months.

With his Porto contract expiring at the end of the season, Taremi has been free to sign a pre-contract agreement since February 1st.

Therefore, Inter accelerated on this front, and are looking to finalize the operation.

The bomber was all set to undergo a medical on Tuesday before putting pen to paper.

Nevertheless, the parties decided to postpone the flight following a media leak.

According to Tuttosport via FcInterNews, this leak enraged both clubs.

Porto didn’t appreciate the timing of the news, especially in the aftermath of their shocking 2-3 defeat at the hands of Arouca.

Hence, Taremi’s medical made for unwanted media exposure at a time where the Portuguese club is enduring a difficult moment.

As for Inter, they were hoping to finalize the operation quietly as they did with Piotr Zielinski earlier this week.

The Pole completed his medical away from the limelight. He took advantage of Napoli’s weekend trip to Milan to undergo the necessary checks.

Why Inter Milan & Porto Were Enraged By The Leak Of Mehdi Taremi Scheduled Medical

So following the leak of Taremi’s scheduled medical, all parties agreed to postpone his flight to Italy.

However, the Iranian’s transfer has never been in doubt.

The Porto striker will arrive in the summer as a free agent to bolster Simone Inzaghi’s attacking ranks.
