Entra Marcus Edwards, sai João Palhinha



Entra Marcus Edwards, sai João Palhinha

O Sporting terá em vista o reforço das opções do plantel e já tem bem encaminhada a contratação de um avançado já muito falado nas últimas semanas.

Marcus Edwards, diz o Record, deverá custar aos cofres de Alvalade uma verba a rondar os oito milhões, isto por apenas metade do passe do inglês. Diz a mesma fonte que os leões oferecem menos que aquilo que o Vitória SC quer, algo na casa dos sete milhões que poderá chegar aos sete e meio. As duas direções encontraram-se e conversaram, escreve ainda o Record nesta terça-feira, e tudo parece estar quase combinado. Ainda assim, há surpresas no mercado do Sporting.

João Palhinha poderá ter os dias contados em Alvalade. O mesmo diário esclarece que o campeão nacional terá em visto um encaixe a rondar os 30 milhões de euros, mas a mesma verba não servirá para contratar Edwards. O médio português tem vários pretendentes desde o início da última temporada e poderá ser desta que a sua saída será consomada. O lugar de Palhinha poderia ser assegurado por Manuel Ugarte, jovem uruguaio que já foi chamado vários vezes para o lugar do português de 26 anos e respondeu com qualidade.

Braga didn’t have a chance to score. Sporting had several. you need to indicate a foul or continue. That’s not what happened. The first mistake was not following the VAR protocol. Braga took advantage of the irritation this move caused. Nobody complains in this zone. .A clear protocol error has occurred. Unfortunately, the game is marked by VAR interference. Nobody sees a foul there,” he defended, still remembering the move with Palinha closer to the break: “There was an elbow strike in the Paligny area. I’ve seen similar bets end differently. With a yellow card or even a red one, sometimes…” Santos targeting the Disciplinary Council (CD) of the Portuguese Football Federation. “It’s like a surreal soap opera.
