Portuguese giants FC Porto are reportedly considering signing Marco Silva to be their manager for next season.

According to Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manhã, the club are only waiting for the final league positions to decide what to do. In case manager Nuno Espírito Santo fails to get the title, he would be sacked and Porto would go for the Hull City boss.

A source told Correio da Manhã that Silva has a release clause which would allow him to leave Hull to join the Portuguese side at the end of the season.

Without a league title since 2013, the club are hungry to break the drought, especially because their rivals Benfica have lifted the trophy in all of these seasons, and could be doing the same this month.

CapturarSilva is said to be an old target for Porto, who only didn’t sign him last year because of his contract with Greek side Olympiacos.

Hull City will be keen to keep Silva, and there’s every chance a Premier League stay could be the manager’s preference too.
