City lender Pedro Porro is playing big against Dortmund’s opponent Sporting. Even Real Madrid are watching him – but his grandfather has something against it.
“Never!” It was Antonio Sauceda’s short but clear statement. Under no circumstances would his grandson play for Real Madrid, he told A Bola, after all, Sauceda did “not have a bit of sympathy” for Los Blancos. Sauceda is the grandfather of Sporting right-back Pedro Porro and – you guessed it – an avowed FC Barcelona fan.
According to O Jogo, Real should already be in pole position for next summer in the Spaniard’s campaign, who has been awarded by Manchester City to Sporting for two years in 2020 and is under contract with the Citizens until 2024. . As SPOX and GOAL learned from Porro’s environment, Real are watching the defender, conversations, not to mention negotiations, have yet to take place.
According to his grandfather’s statements, he had received a lot of messages, Porro said via Twitter, who was forced to comment. “I want to make it clear that Real are one of the greatest teams in the world. Every footballer would love to play for such a team,” commented the 22-year-old, although he doubted “that my grandfather said something like that. “. With his statement, Porro – knowing that Real were watching him – may not have wanted to hamper the option of a later move to Madrid.
Meanwhile, Sporting, where Porro has recorded six goals and four assists in 52 games since joining, are hoping the right foot will stick around for good. However, according to O Jogo, the Portuguese would only have a say in Porro if they advance to the knockout stages of the Champions League and the resulting income. The next duel against BVB on Wednesday evening (from 9 p.m. LIVETICKER) is therefore decisive for the future of Sporting and Porro.
Girona instead of the best club: Porro’s rejection of Real and Bayern for the city’s dream
In order to get Porro out of Manchester, the traditional Portuguese club would have to activate an exit clause, according to reports. Based on information from SPOX and GOAL, however, it is below the rumors of 8.5 million euros. The Skyblues do not want to make it even more difficult a possible final farewell to their protege.
A return to ManCity is also not entirely excluded, although Porro relies on information from SPOX and GOAL are aware of the well-known full-back positions at the England champions.
For the dream of one day playing for City, Porro, who signed up from Girona, would have canceled Real, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, according to Spanish sports. At 17, the Spain international (one mission) decided to move from his youth club Rayo Vallecano to the youngsters of Girona – in the hopes of being able to recommend himself to the English first team via the farm team ManCity.
Sportsman: Porro, Pep and a lack of communication in City
In 2019, the decision seems to have paid off: City signed Porro for twelve million euros. But whoever decisively decides who will ultimately reach the pros has apparently not been involved – Pep Guardiola.
“I never spoke to him,” Porro admitted to A Bola a few months ago. The Catalan probably does not know “that his club signed me at the time”.
It should probably happen to some city fans as well, as Porro was rewarded immediately after moving to Valladolid and later to Lisbon without the Skyblues officially announcing Porro’s engagement. The announcement was made on behalf of Girona.
