Celtic and Burnley both had officials at Porto’s match with Tondela this weekend, report A Bola.
The Portuguese newspaper names Celtic and Burnley along with Arsenal and Manchester United as having spies at the match. A Bola don’t pretend to know who the two clubs could be interested in, but it’s likely to be a player from Porto, the home team.
Brendan Rodgers often has his Celtic spies at Portuguese matches, sending scouts at least a few times a season. This season the visits haven’t been quite as often as the previous campaign, but visiting Porto would suggest an ambitious target is being watched.
Burnley are one of the Premier League clubs least seen at Portuguese matches, so there’s every chance Sean Dyche has his an eye on some in-particular.
Porto won the match, with Moussa Marega scoring the only goal of the game. Celtic were linked with Marega last year when he was on loan from Porto at Vitoria Guimaraes, and Rodgers had scouts watching that club at the time.
The striker may be out of the price range of both Burnley and Celtic now, and that’s unlikely to change if he continues scoring goals.
