Rolando arrived in Italy this week, had dinner with Nerazzurri directors on Friday and underwent medical tests in Milan.
He has flown back out to Portugal to sort out some red tape issues, but yesterday afternoon Inter released a statement confirming the move.
The 27-year-old "is ready to join the squad after their American tour. Inter and the fans give him a warm welcome."
