The agent of Inter Milan's Diego Forlan claims the striker's contract will be terminated this weekend and he will move to Brazil amid reports linking him with Internacional.
The Uruguay international has failed to make an impact with the Nerazzurri since signing from Atletico Madrid last summer, having struggled for form and fitness.
Former Manchester United frontman Forlan made only 14 appearances on his debut season in Serie A, scoring just two goals.
Brazilian club Internacional have previously expressed their interest in signing the 33-year-old should he become available on a free transfer.
And according to the player's agent, Jorge Baidek, that will be the case when Forlan ends his deal at Inter Milan on Saturday.
Baidek told Lancenet: "I'm a naturally cautious person, but things are right on track.
"I've talked to the player - his contract (with Inter Milan) will be cancelled tomorrow and then I'll take him to Sao Paulo and from there to our next step."
He added: "I'm optimistic. I can't say anything before his contract is cancelled...but it's well on track."
