I'm sold. They don't concede many.Don't know all that much about him apart from being a lanky DM and a bit of a late bloomer who stopped being loaned out only recently at the age of 25 (he's 26 now), but he seems key for Sporting and broke into the Portugal squad in the last year as well. I'll look forward to the lowdown from our resident Sporting guys.
Could easily be the budget option if West Ham continue asking crazy money for Rice, but it could very easily be Portuguese journos putting 2 and 2 together, as we saw with about 700 players from the league we were linked with in the past few years before we actually signed a couple.
More of a big fish in a small pond, like Bruno in my opnion, I'd say he'd transfer well into the Premier League. Lots of energy, a big physical unit and isn't afraid to put himself about.Would be cautious of him as may be a player in the right system and tactics that has been implemented by a class up and coming manager.
