Taremi Discusses Porto Departure and Transfer to Inter

Mehdi Taremi will be officially unveiled as a new Inter player after his Porto contract formally runs out on June 30th. He spoke about the move to Iranian journalist Hatam Shiralizadeh (via Calciomercato).

“I had just a meeting with the team to discuss the renewal. I told the officials something, they said no, and that was the end of the story with them. Portugal is my second home. My feelings toward their fans have had a great impact on my personal life. I will be a lifelong supporter.”

Taremi is looking forward to this next chapter.

“Whoever plays at Inter must be a high-level player. Some offers don’t need much pondering, and you take them right away. I have had a brief chat with Simone Inzaghi, who had a good opinion of me. It’ll be exciting to work with them.”

Taremi turned down other offers to move to Milan.

“I’ve never considered proposals from Al Hilal or other Middle Eastern clubs. I’m always looking for opportunities to grow and join stronger teams. Several European sides showed interest, but none of them sent an official bid. Three or four English clubs, a pair of Italian ones, and one of the top Spanish outfits inquired. I’ll be in Italy in two weeks. If it’s free, I’ll choose no.99. Ronaldo Nazario is the best player in history in my mind. He’s my model.”

Taremi has concurred to a two-year deal with an option and will make €3M annually at Inter, EuroSport informs.
