They all say the claims come from ESPN, who supposedly said the Baggies were offering the Portuguese side €25m.
None of the Portuguese stories have a link to ESPN’s claims, so it only makes it more difficult to find the original source.
But all of them agree that €25m should still not be enough to buy Slimani, who’s only leaving Sporting for at least €30m, which is basically the same thing that’s been repeated in the past year.
A typical case of not a lot to see here. We’ll keep an eye on the Portuguese media for any more exciting updates.
