Inter are reportedly considering an offer for William Carvalho, but are wary of FIFA arbitration on his dispute with Sporting CP.
A number of players rescinded their contract with the Portuguese club after being attacked by fans.
That means that, in theory, Carvalho could join the Nerazzurri on a free transfer but Sporting have confirmed that they intend to dispute every contract cancellation with FIFA.
Any club signing a former Sporting player would therefore be liable for any damages awarded, so Sky reports the Beneamata are studying the legal situation before making an offer to the midfielder.
