Sporting CP send message to Tottenham Hotspur over Pedro Porro and Marcus Edwards

Sporting CP manager Ruben Amorim has reminded Tottenham Hotspur that Pedro Porro and Marcus Edwards will only leave if their respective release clauses are met.

The Spanish right-back has a release clause worth 39.7million Pounds in his contract while the English winger, who was with Spurs’ academy before moving to Portugal in 2019, has a buyout clause of 52million Pounds.

Amorim and manager Antonio Conte came face-to-face twice in the UEFA Champions League earlier this season, where Spurs would have had a close look at both the players. Edwards was particularly.

He is a silky dribbler who makes things happen in the final third, but all things considered, there is hardly a chance he will start for us regularly – not with Dejan Kulusevski and Richarlison available to play down that side.

Nevertheless, addressing the future of both their stars, Amorim recently said (h/t Evening Standard):

“We are not as attractive a league as others and we cannot pay the same wages. This is a problem, even in relation to Portuguese clubs we have this difficulty.

“As was said, they only leave for the clause. We are ready. We know the amount of attacks that go through Porro and Edwards, nobody is blind here. But the market is what it is.”

So, as we mentioned above, Edwards will struggle to be a regular starter for us. Make no mistake, he would be a fine addition to the squad but it remains to be seen if he will be open to such a role after being a regular starter with Sporting CP.

Moreover, is it worth spending that much on a player who isn’t a guaranteed starter? Hardly any Spurs fan will say yes to that. Given Emerson Royal and Matt Doherty’s largely average showings down the right flank, a move for Porro makes more sense.

If the Lilywhites have the option, a move for the former Manchester City full-back makes more sense. He would, after all, be a competitor to raise the standards in our first team and at 23, can only get better with time.
