Leicester City could be finding a much better scenario to sign Sporting midfielder Adrien Silva this summer.
As reported by A Bola last week, the Foxes are still interested in the player after having a deal rejected at the start of the season.
And now O Jogo reports that Sporting have already told the midfielder his sale could be negotiated in the next transfer market, as long as a club come forward with an acceptable offer.
Adrien Silva has a €45m release clause, and that’s what Sporting relied on last summer. But this time, it’s claimed €30m would be enough to take the midfielder from the club.
As it’s the same €30m which Leicester City would have offered last summer, that would be a fine opportunity for the Foxes to finally land the player.
The Portuguese press tend to change their mind on this, almost by the week. Last week it was the player’s release clause being referred to once again, and now there’s a potential big discount.
Should Leicester City still be interested in the summer, having gone through a management change then it’s probably worth giving the €30m another go.
