Porro’s impressive showings during his loan spell at Sporting had initiated a battle amongst a host of clubs in Europe for his signature, with the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid previously reported to have eyed his signing.

With Kyle Walker set to turn 32 in May, it’s clear to see that Pep Guardiola’s side have also kept an eye on the gifted 22-year old, as they consider him as a contingency plan for the rapid but ageing Englishman.
