Inter pull out of Fernando race

It is reported that Inter have pulled out of the race to sign Porto star Fernando, as his price-tag has grown too much.

The Nerazzurri were heavily linked with the Europa League-winning Brazilian midfielder, who was also of interest to Juventus.

However, according to Sky Sport Italia and A Bola newspaper, technical director Marco Branca is moving his attention elsewhere.

The reason is that Olympique Lyonnais have come in with a massive offer in the region of €25m.

Inter do not want to spark a bidding war for the 23-year-old and would prefer to pull out now.
