Portuguese newspaper A Bola has a story today explaining the situation of several Sporting players who are wanted by Premier League clubs.
When speaking of William Carvalho, A Bola say something which hasn’t been said before, catching our attention. They claim he would be available for only €20m, a price which is lower than ever.
Old reports said he would only leave for his €45m release clause, then in the past few months, Sporting would have made him available for €30m. Never €20m.
West Brom were said to have offered more than that last summer, and obviously didn’t end up with the player.
Carvalho has been linked to numerous clubs since debuting for Sporting’s first team. In the past few months, Arsenal, Manchester City, and especially West Brom, have all been credited with interest.
Either A Bola are horribly wrong, or Carvalho is now available at a big discount for West Brom, which will surely please Tony Pulis.
