Inter re-open Rolando talks?

Inter are reportedly once more in negotiations to try and reach an agreement with Porto for defender Rolando.

The Nerazzurri have struggled so far this summer to agree terms with the Portuguese side to make permanent the centre-back’s transfer to San Siro, after his 2013-14 loan spell.

Whilst talks were seen as having ended recently, Gianluca Di Marzio’s website is running the line that Inter officials have once more contacted a market intermediary.

It is believed that their intention is to try to revive negotiations and find a deal with Porto for the defender, whose current contract expires next summer.

The main sticking point is seen to be the two clubs’ respective valuations, with Porto asking for €5m for the 28-year-old, but Inter apparently looking to spend no more than €3m.

Reports over the weekend were that Roma may be prepared to come in with a move for Rolando too.
