This Friday, the Portuguese press doesn’t have a clue if Chancel Mbemba is finally joining Porto imminently or not.

Two local newspapers have a story about the Newcastle player. One of them is A Bola, who are wondering if today is the day when the clubs will find an agreement.

They say that despite getting to a deal for the personal terms, Porto still couldn’t convince the Magpies to accept their offer, as €2m separates them.

Another newspaper who has an article about the rumour is Record, who probably got Captain Obvious to write it.

They say that as the Newcastle squad is returning back from their holidays today, we should keep an eye out and see if Mbemba is among the players in training. If he’s there, then it means he won’t be signing for Porto this Friday.

Thanks Sherlock.

As the Magpies still didn’t release pictures from the training session today, we can’t say if Mbemba has presented himself to the club or not.
