cleaning continues with Nakajima

The dragoons ceded Baró to Casa Pia and turned to the case of the Japanese. Portimonense wants a new loan, Porto players prefer to sell.

FC Porto enter the final week of the transfer market with the house practically tidy. Yesterday brought the confirmation of Romário Baró’s loan to Casa Piaso that the Blues and Whites can now focus their efforts on settling the case against Nakajima, who was assigned, once again, to Portimonense last season.

The Algarve club have already expressed their desire to welcome him back in the same way, but the Dragons have chosen to postpone the decision until very close to the market close, in the hope to still be able to sell the player, who turned 28 yesterday.

The devaluation recorded in recent seasons, combined with the team’s voluntary withdrawal during the pandemic phase and the serious injury that followed, makes it very difficult to recover the €12 million paid to Al-Duhail in 2019 to acquire 50%. of Nakajima’s economic rights. However, a permanent transfer would at least lower the club’s wage bill a bit more.

With the decision not to join him a long time ago, FC Porto allowed Nakajima to spend a good part of the closed season in Japan recovering from a physical problem. Meanwhile the midfielder, who has a contract with the club until June 30, 2024, has been left to travel to Portugal but has advised he will have to work separately until a decision is made. . The end of the wait is near.

João Pedro out of contract

Sacked by Corinthians in July, when the loan contract with FC Porto expired, João Pedro could be an easier matter for the Blues and Whites to settle. The right-back has entered the final year of his association with the club, so terminating the contract is an option to consider in case no one comes up with a buy offer before August 31. Santa Clara has come to partner with the Brazilian, who is a bit interested in the country of origin, but for now the future is still unknown.
