He is a natural baller, a very promising youngster.

Find me a single Sporting player that fella hasn’t praised to the high heavens
Raphinha. Which I was wrong about because he turned out to be pretty dam good.

Eric Dier. Another player I was not overly fond of.

Marcos Rojo another guy I didn’t think was good enough to be a EPL player.

Adrien Silva who I stated didn’t have the legs for the EPL.

Joao Mario who I did not believe he was worth 40M

Slimani who was not good enough either for the EPL.

So ya….Thats a false statement.

I think Inacio should stay at Sporting one more season before even thinking of a move. Still has room to grow as a footballer and I believe he needs to add more muscle mass especially if he wants to make it in England. Sporting will be fighting for the title again next season and will play in the CL once again which would be huge experience for him.

Now with that being said I understand why ETH would be interested in Inacio. Inacio is a ball playing center back who is very comfortable me with the ball in his feet. He has created constant chances at Sporting due to his long passed and even has some assists to his name. Inacio is comfortable on the right or left side of the defence but he has mainly played as a RCB in Sportings 5-2-3 formation.

This season he should be playing at the LCB position with the signing of St Juste who will be playing on the right.

Sporting will most likely sell Joao Palhinha to Wolves this summer and with the money we are getting from Nuno Mendes who PSG are paying for in July and the guaranteed CL money their is no reason for Sporting to sell.

PROS: Comfortable with the ball in his feet/ball playing CB (see above quotes with video footage in the thread), reads the game well and can play on both sides of the defence comfortably. Reads the game very well

CONS: small frame (this worries me for the
EPL, always looked like a player who would do better in La Liga) sometimes gets caught in behind and lacks concentration at times. Right foot also seems to be a weak point.

He looks good, but I would prefer Ndicka over him any day. In fact I would prefer Ndicka over most defenders. He looks special.

There isn't a single good one? What about the TV channels or something?
The problem is they all quote each other. All of their sources are exactly the same.

Out of the three I prefer Record but the truth is none are really that good.

Going by the vids, which isn't enough I know, he reminds me of that Villarreal CB we've been linked with in the past year.

He needs to stay 1 more year. That would be the smart career decision .
