Man City player nears exit after club opens talks about €12m deal

Manchester City and Sporting Lisbon have been in close negotiations for youngster Pedro Porro (20), who is seeking a two-year loan deal at the Portuguese club, according to O Jogo as relayed by Sport Witness

There is some debate as to whether Lisbon can match City’s €12 million buy out clause, with the club not wanting to pay higher than €10 million.

The Spanish right-back signed for City from Villarreal in 2019 for a fee of around £11 million, however he was immediately loaned to La Liga team Real Valladoid. Since then he has made 11 appearances for the club, who finished the season in a respectable 13th.

Porro operates mainly as a right-back but he is comfortable in a more offensive role as a winger.

The Portuguese team want to bolster their defence, and they feel like the youngster could be a good addition. As relayed by Sport Witness, his salary will be split between the two clubs during the loan spell, with the deal likely to be finalised after a medical has been completed at the club.
