After several days of uncertainty to finalize the final details of the signing, the Extremaduran footballer is now a Tottenham player. The English club made official tonight the signing of the right-back after completing the medical tests. According to English media, the signing has been closed in compliance with the demands of Sporting de Portugal, which was clinging to the footballer’s termination clause, 45 million euros, and the contract will extend until 2028. Specifically, they point out from England that it is a transfer by the Portuguese club with an obligation to purchase in the month of July. He will wear number 23.
Pedro Porro (Don Benito, 1999) did not train yesterday with the Portuguese team, where he has played for the last three seasons, as he was already focused on his signing for the ‘Spurs’. He will now live his first experience in the Premier League under the command of Italian coach Antonio Conte. It so happens that Tottenham’s next game will be this Sunday against Manchester City, a team that acquired his services in 2019, although he did not wear this shirt after his loan first to Valladolid and then to Sporting de Portugal. .
Currently, the London team is in fifth position, with 36 points, far behind Arsenal, which leads the standings with 50 points.
Pedro Porro leaves Sporting after playing 23 games this season, scoring three goals and giving 11 assists. Numbers that have helped him knock on the doors of the Premier, although in this winter market he also appeared for other teams. «I’m leaving a club that gave me everything. I am very grateful and I hope that everything turns out well for them,” Portuguese media reported on the statements of the Dombeni native last night at the Lisbon airport.
The signing of Pedro Porro for Tottenham has also caused a cascade of entries and exits in other clubs, causing Héctor Bellerín to sign for Sporting de Portugal to reinforce the right back after the departure of the Dombeni native. The culé club is also now looking for a replacement for Bellerín.
From the League to the Premier
Pedro Porro was on Luis Enrique’s pre-list for the World Cup in Qatar. Last May, he signed a renewal with Sporting until 2025.
It is worth remembering that, after training at Gimnástica Don Benito, Pedro Porro signed for Girona as a youth, from Rayo Vallecano. He did so as a forward, but soon began to occupy the right wing, where he stood out in LaLiga, being one of the revelations of the championship. Signed by Manchester City for 10 million euros, he played on loan at Valladolid, where things did not go well for him.
The next loan was to Sporting, where from the first day he fit in perfectly and he leaves with great regret for the Sporting fans. The Portuguese club exercised its purchase option of 8.5 million euros and he remained in ownership with the player who is now beginning a new experience in English football.
