Porto midfielder Fernando will only join Inter if they pay his €30m release clause, the club President has insisted.
The Nerazzurri have been heavily linked with the 25-year-old, but reports have suggested they are only willing to pay between €10-15m for the anchor man.
However, the Portuguese side’s chief has claimed that only a substantial bid will see the player leave.
“Fernando will only join another club if they pay his release clause,” Pinto da Costa told reporters.
Fernando has been at Porto since 2007, playing 187 times for the club.
