Another twist in the Porro saga: Player skips training to force a move to Spurs

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to Football London, Pedro Porro today missed Sporting CP’s training session after the collapse of his proposed transfer to Tottenham.

The two clubs had reached a verbal agreement, but Sporting had a change of heart regarding certain details of the deal.

The negotiations had progressed significantly and Porro appeared to be on the brink of a move. It is reported that he even said goodbye to the Sporting fans after their Taca de Portugal final defeat to Porto and was set to travel to London for a medical on Monday.

However, things took a turn for the worse over the weekend and the medical was cancelled, when the two clubs failed to reach an agreement on the fee structure. It was reported by David Ornstein from the Athletic that the Portuguese club repudiated the terms of the proposed deal and insisted on the release clause to be paid upfront.

Porro was reportedly left distraught after the Sporting president told him that he would be allowed to leave following the League Cup final on Saturday.

Despite the setback, Porro has not given up on his move to Spurs and is still hoping that a transfer can be agreed.

Portuguese journalist Bruno Andrade has confirmed that Porro missed the club’s first training session following their 2-0 loss to Porto on Saturday.

Fabrizio Romano has also updated that the two clubs are in a meeting trying to resolve the issues in the deal and the outcome will determine where Porro will play his football for the next six months.

Tottenham has a crucial 24 hours to get the deal back on track and secure the transfer target that they have been pursuing throughout the January transfer window for Antonio Conte.
