Real Madrid make enquiry for Pedro Porro
Real Madrid have reportedly made an approach for Pedro Porro. The Spanish international, though, is expected to spend next season on loan at Sporting Lisbon.
According to a report by Portuguese outlet O Jogo, Real Madrid have submitted an enquiry for Pedro Porro over a possible move in the future. However, the Spanish international, currently on loan at Sporting Lisbon from Manchester City, is expected to remain at the Jose Alvalade Stadium next season as well.
Pedro Porro joined Manchester City from Girona in the summer of 2019, but is yet to make a single appearance for the Premier League heavyweights. Immediately after making his way to the Etihad, the Spaniard was sent on loan to Real Valladolid, where he spent the entirety of last season.
Ahead of the ongoing campaign, the 21-year-old was hauled out on loan again, this time to Sporting Lisbon on a two-year deal. Porro has impressed a great deal at the Jose Alvalade Stadium, where he is the first-choice right-back and has gone on to amass 30 appearances this term. His exploits seem to have been noted in his homeland, with Real Madrid interested in signing him.
Real Madrid are in the market for a right-back ahead of the summer transfer window owing to the uncertain future that Alvaro Odriozola is facing, with the Spanish international reportedly on their transfer list. In addition, with Dani Carvajal struggling with a few injuries this term, the need to sign a right-back makes sense, especially with Lucas Vazquez also tipped to depart as a free agent.
To that end, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, among a few others. And now, Porro has emerged on the radar of Los Blancos ahead of the summer transfer window, with the defending La Liga champions even lodging an enquiry over his availability.
However, Real Madrid do not seem to have a chance of signing Porro this summer, with Sporting set to retain his services for another season, as things stand, as per the terms of their deal with Manchester City. With that in mind, if Real Madrid are to sign a right-back this summer, they must set their sights elsewhere, or wait for one year before making a move for the Spanish international.
