Sporting haven’t officially presented any reinforcements for 2020/21 yet, but they already have two policyholders who went to the gym yesterday to see the corners at home: Pedro Porro, right-back on loan from Manchester City and Vitorino Antunes, left-back who signs as a free player. The officialization of both reinforcements can take place this weekend and the pair will be available to Rúben Amorim at the start of the Leonine season on Monday.
The 20-year-old Spaniard, who drove in Valladolid last season after being hired by Girona for 12 million euros, arrived in Lisbon on Thursday, underwent medical examinations, visited the workplace yesterday and is preparing for the presentation before officials in the club’s media. Released by the English for two seasons with the option to buy € 8.5m and should have Rafael Camacho as rival on the right flank as Ristovski and Rosier await placement in the market.
The 33-year-old left-hander Antunes ended his association with Getafe and signed with Sporting as a free player for two seasons. It is also presented on the weekend. The race for the title is contested with the young Nuno Mendes, who “threw” the experienced Acuña (who is also on the market) in the last section of the last league to the left of the trio of the central.
In addition to these two athletes and Pedro Gonçalves (more on page 14), the Lions have spoken to goalkeeper Adán (the season ended Thursday with Atlético de Madrid) and are on the verge of guaranteeing the left-handed center-back Zouhair Feddal, after long negotiations with the player and Betis.
