Man City set to sell forgotten defender Pedro Porro who Pep Guardiola ‘doesn’t know about’ for £25million
PEP GUARDIOLA’S summer warchest at Manchester City could be boosted by the sale of Spanish defender Pedro Porro.
The full-back is currently on loan at Sporting Lisbon – who have the option to make the move permanent in the summer for a fee of around £10.8million.
The defender recently claimed he has never spoked with Guardiola and jokingly suggested that the City manager doesn't even know about him.
Porro told A Bola: "No, I never spoke to Pep Guardiola.
"I don't think he even knows they hired me. But they must be attentive to what I have been doing."
Both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are currently monitoring the 22-year-old.

And if the Portuguese club cannot afford the agreed transfer fee, then he will return to the Etihad in the summer.
And reports in Portugal say the two European giants would be willing to pay around £25m for Porro – who has never played a game for City.
That would be a welcome boost for the English champs as they prepare a move for Borussia Dortmund hotshot Erling Haaland this summer.
Ideally Guardiola would like to sign a left-back and a holding midfielder to replace club captain Fernandinho.
