Da Costa: No Rolando contact

Porto President Pinto Da Costa says he has not spoken to anyone at Inter regarding their pursuit of defender Rolando.

The 28-year-old spent last season on loan with the Nerazzurri, with both the player and the club seemingly wanting to make the move to San Siro permanent.

However, speaking to the Portuguese side’s official television station, the Estadio Dragao chief admitted he wants the centre-back to remain at his parent club next term.

“Every day I hear talk about Inter,” Da Costa said. “But I can say that I haven’t ever met with anyone from their club. Rolando will be part of our team.

“No one from Inter has spoken to me and personally I have wanted the player to return for a long time.”
