It’s said all these clubs have made bids for the player in the past and continue to make the list of competitors for the signing.

O Jogo doesn’t say how much Porto would want to let Diogo Leite go, but they make it clear that the defender is currently protected by a release clause of €40m and a contract running until 2024.
