Sporting manager, Ruben Amorim, is a huge admirer of the Selecao midfielder but the Liga Nos club are already prepared for his eventual sale and the manager has tried Tabata and Goncalves in his position.
As far as the competition is concerned, CM Jornal mention that Man City and Wolves are interested as well and the three-way race could accelerate the transfer of the midfielder.
