Real Madrid Eyeing A Move For This Spanish Full-Back: Right Choice For Los Blancos?

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent print edition, O Jogo has claimed that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Manchester City full-back Pedro Porro who is currently playing on loan for Sporting CP. It has been revealed that Los Blancos are keeping tabs on the Spanish youngster’s progress ahead of a potential move in the summer (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).

Porro’s Excellent Form In Portuguese Football This Season

Porro is having an impressive loan spell at the José Alvalade Stadium after putting in a run of eye-catching displays on the right side of Ruben Amorim’s defence. The 21-year-old has featured in 30 matches for the Portuguese giants this term, netting four goals and grabbing one assist in various competitions.

The Don Benito-born right-back has been a joy to watch and deserves a lot of plaudits for his all-around influence at both ends of the field as he is averaging 1.4 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.7 shots, 1.4 key passes and 1.3 dribbles per game in the Liga NOS. Still, Porro needs to work on improving his ball-distribution based on his pass completion rate of 71.8% in the Portuguese top tier (stats via whoscored).

If the Spanish starlet’s form this season is anything to go by, Real Madrid will do well to acquire his services as he is a solid right-back who is only going to get better with each year. However, with Sporting having the option to sign him permanently, it could make it difficult for Zinedine Zidane to get a deal done for Porro this summer.

What Are The Spanish Full-Back’s Best Attributes?

Porro is a quick and agile full-back and can make a few exciting runs down the right flank. He has transformed himself into a decent defender at the back because of his tenacity to earn possession back for his team. The former Girona talent can even create some meaningful openings for others around him.

The Spanish prospect is not shy of clearing the danger when needed and can chip in with a few important goals in the final third. However, he is still quite inexperienced and has still got a lot to learn before he can taste success at the top level.

Is Porro The Right Choice For Zidane?

Based on Porro’s excellent form for Sporting this season, he will be a great choice for Los Blancos as he has all the right attributes to rival Daniel Carvajal for a starting place in Zidane’s first-team next season. Porro is an exciting young full-back and could potentially grow into a world-class player in European football. Thus, the Madrid giants should try everything they can to lure him to the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in the future.
