Whilst Inter are on the cusp of sealing Iranian marksman Mehdi Taremi on a free transfer ahead of next season, Portuguese giants FC Porto have reached an agreement with all parties involved in the deal to postpone his medical examinations to a future date, rather than early this week.

After announcing his intentions to depart Porto at the end of the season when his contract runs out and reaching an agreement with the Nerazzurri ahead of next season regarding a two-year deal with the option of additional year worth 3.5m per-season, the 31-year-old was set to fly out to Milan this week in order to undergo his medical examinations.

However, Sky Sport reports, via FcInter1908, that following Porto’s recent 3-2 defeat to Arouca, coach Sergio Conceicao’s side resumed training this morning, preventing Taremi from boarding a flight to Milan this week.

In addition, the news of the player’s medical visits also caused a stir of emotions in Portugal. Given that Taremi will still have to play for around four months with the Porto shirt before his contract expires, the parties have decided by mutual agreement to postpone the medical exams as away to avoid too many problems for Taremi and the Portguese club.

Despite the delay in the medical examinations, Taremi’s move to Inter is not at risk of falling out as the player is fully committed to playing with the Beneamata next season. The player will therefore carry out his medicals in order to seal his move to the San Siro ahead of the 2024/25 campaign within the near future.
