Sporting and Reading are still struggling to find a deal for the transfer of Tiago Ilori to the Portuguese side.
Reading are reportedly demanding €3m for a deal, while Sporting already offered €1.5m, and will now only raise the bid to €2m, no more than that.
A Bola says the Lions could even include some bonuses, but they would also have to pay the fee in different instalments.
A Bola claims that although the player wants to return to Sporting so it would be easier for him to get a call up for the national team, he won’t force his way out of Reading, who have made a big effort to sign him from Liverpool.
Record says this week will be ‘decisive’ for a deal, although the transfer window goes until January 31st.
