Pedro Porro has been very important for Sporting this season, with the Spaniard continuing to justify the hype around his potential.
The 23-year-old has been playing as an advanced right back, or a right wing-back, and in 24 matches this season he’s scored three goals and added 11 assists.
Sporting signed Porro permanently from Manchester City after a loan deal, and he’s been attracting interest from elsewhere since before the Lisbon club used their buying clause.
A move to Los Blancos, and subsequent return to Spain, is seen as an attractive option for the footballer. In addition, the ‘worst case scenario’ for Sporting is presented, and according to Record that’s Manchester City using their €23m buyback clause.
That sounds like a very advantageous deal for Pep Guardiola’s side, but there’s been no indication yet that it’s something they’re planning to do.
