Porto hopeful on a deal for Barcelona’s Miranda
Portuguese giant, FC Porto is hopeful in signing Barcelona defender Juan Miranda next season.
Diario Sport reports that Porto has therefore joined Real Betis and Schalke in the queue of clubs wanting the defender’s signature.
There is a likelihood that the left-back will stay in Gelsenkirchen, where he is currently on a season-long loan having settled into the squad. According to the paper, he would prefer staying in Germany and continue his progress rather than returning to the Camp Nou as a back-up plan.
However, his future remains unclear after featuring in just seven matches this season, where he made three starts. This means that he won’t meet the minimum of 20 matches to trigger the automatic extension of the loan deal by another season.
On the other hand, this has boosted the hopes of Porto signing him.
