Bruma will make the move from Sporting to Porto.
Young Sporting Lisbon winger Bruma looks set to snub a Premier League move to Manchester United or Liverpool by instead choosing Portuguese champions FC Porto, reports A Bola.
The 18-year-old only has a year remaining on his current contract and Sporting are therefore looking to cash in on the attacker, rather than losing him on a free in 12 months time.
Both United and Liverpool had become alerted to Bruma’s availability and were looking to secure a deal for the Portugal under-20 international of around £5m.
Yet the teenager is set to snub the two English giants in favour of move to Primeira Liga winners Porto, who are aiming for a fourth successive title in Bruma’s home country.
The winger has been causing quite a stir in Portugal having broken into the first team in 2013 and going on to make 13 appearances for Sporting, scoring once and setting up four more goals.
Bruma’s club are in the unfortunate position of having their hand forced in any transfer negotiations due to the forward’s impending contract expiry and would have to accept a lot less than would normally be demanded.
Porto are looking to build their squad back up once more following the sales of Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez to super-rich Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in a double-deal worth £60m.
The club are also having to cope following the departure of their manager Vitor Pereira, their second managerial loss in the past two years along with Andre Villas-Boas.
