The rumors on Porro picked up steam over the weekend as he was mentioned as one of several candidates to take over a role in Julian Nagelsmann’s squad. Nagelsmann’s preference for a back three-based formation has the club looking for a right wing-back and Porros was considered a fit.
Porro’s situation was confusing for some to comprehend, though, so talkSport journalist Zach Lowy broke down how a sale of Porro could play out. Porro is technically on loan from Manchester City at Sporting CP, so it might be unclear as to how it would all have to work for Bayern Munich to get him — and what the cost might have been:
Bayern Munich are looking to sign Pedro Porro this summer and have made him a priority, per @marca.— Zach Lowy (@ZachLowy) March 21, 2022
Porro’s release clause is €45 million but Sporting, who paid €8.5 million to buy him, have set his price at €30 million.
Of course, Falk’s latest report seems to indicate that Sporting CP will not consider selling Porro anyway.
