Born in Cape Verde, the 27-year-old is a naturalised Portuguese citizen. Since beginning his career at Belenenses, he has acquired a wealth of experience at Porto (2008-2013), Napoli and Portugal (U21 and senior teams), and will now further strengthen Walter Mazzarri's defensive options.

The Indonesian is only interested in business. The club must stay Italian and be restructured, I can help find other entrepreneurs.
I have nothing personal against Thohir, I don't know him and he has an enviable financial position.
However, this situation saddens me because I would hate to see my favourite team end up in the hands of a stranger.

I don't know if the deal will go through or not. I don't know, and I don't know how long it will take.
There are other things we need to work out with Inter, but everything is going in the right direction.
Whether I take a minority share or a majority (share) will be important; we'll see what can be agreed.
The goal is to make Inter one of the top 10 teams in the world.

– Marco Andreolli
For me it's a homecoming. I remember the day I left, I was really sad to be leaving Inter and it's great to be back after so many years.
I have improved and I have a real sense of pride to be back here. I always wanted to come back and have worked hard for it.
