Inter midfielder Joao Mario has arrived in Portugal to undergo his medical before reportedly completing a one-year loan move to Sporting CP.
Calciomercato.com reveals the Portuguese midfielder, who spent last term on loan at Lokomotiv Moscow, has travelled to his homeland to complete a return to the Lisbon side.
Joao Mario will move on a dry loan to Sporting CP, without any options or obligations to buy, and the report claims the Leoes will only pay one third of his salary, around €1m.
The 27-year-old moved in the opposite direction to Inter in August 2016 but never quite settled at the Nerazzurri.
The Portugal international, capped 46 times, spent six months on loan at West Ham too, and has appeared 69 times for Inter during the last four years.
