Herrera agent rubbishes Serie A talk

Hector Herrera’s agent has rubbished reports that he is in talks with Inter, Roma and Milan, while opening the door to a new contract with Porto.

It was said on Wednesday that Gabriel Moraes was flying to Italy for meetings with Inter and Roma and that Milan were ‘keeping tabs’ on Herrera’s situation, given the midfielder’s contract expires this summer.

However, the representative told A Bola: “Herrera hasn’t ruled out staying with Porto.

“There were talks with President Pinto da Costa, so anything can happen. Nothing that’s been written or said in the last few days is true.

“Hector hasn’t negotiated with any club, neither with Inter, Roma nor Milan like people have said.

“One of the lies that have been written is that I flew to Italy to iron out the details of his contract.

“Well, I didn’t leave Porto because my daughter is sick. Non-EU status? That’s also a lie. Last September the law changed.

“Herrera will only meet all the necessary requirements for a Portuguese passport and obtain EU status in July.

“However, as everyone knows or should know, it’s a process that can take several months.

“What’s certain is that Hector won’t leave Porto this month. He wants to win more trophies with the club and that’s all he’s thinking about.”
