Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid battle to sign €45 million right-back

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are in a battle to sign Spanish right-back Pedro Porro from Portuguese club Sporting CP this summer.

Porro joined Sporting CP from Premier League side Manchester City on a two-year loan deal with the option of making his stay permanent for just €8.5 million in August 2020.

After two impressive seasons, Sporting CP signed Porro permanently last month from Manchester City.

Porro signed a three year deal with Sporting CP last month with the contract having a €45million release clause. Manchester City also reportedly have a €20million buy-back option.

Real Madrid have been impressed with Porro’s performances for Sporting CP and are ready to submit an offer for the right-back in the wake of Dani Carvajal’s waning performance levels.

Real Madrid are also considering signing Chelsea right-back Reece James but it’s unlikely the Premier League side will let the England international leave this summer.
