Manchester City outcast Pedro Porro has claimed that he’s unsure that Pep Guardiola even knows he’s on his team. So, amidst today’s other transfer news football, Porro has never spoken to Pep, by his own admission.
City forked out £11 million ($15m) to bring Pedro Porro to Etihad Stadium from Girona in 2019.
However, they immediately sent him out on loan to Real Valladolid to continue his development there, away from City.
Ever since, the Spanish defender has found opportunities hard to come by at Etihad Stadium.
And now, finally, after two years on the sidelines at City, Porro looks may move to new pastures this summer.
The City outcast has even hinted that he is on the verge of completing a permanent move to Sporting CP.
The 21-year-old returned to Manchester last summer after struggling for regular minutes, playing on loan at Valladolid (the football news).
Sporting CP subsequently snapping him up on a two-year loan deal. Now, the Portuguese club now looks set to buy the right-back outright, with Porro himself open to a football transfer.
Transfer News Football – Porro Has Never Spoken to Pep
Pedro Porro signed a five-year contract upon his initial arrival at City. But he has yet to see a single minute of competitive action for the club.
Indeed, the Spain international says he hasn’t had any contact with Guardiola during his time on the Manchester outfit’s books.
He has even suggested, jokingly or otherwise, that the head coach remains unaware of his presence.
“No, I’ve never talked to Pep Guardiola. I don’t think he even knows they hired me (laughs),” Porro said during an interview with Portuguese publication A Bola.
“But they must be aware of what I’ve been doing.”
