Now that Domingos Paciência has officially signed on as Sporting head coach it’s back to the transfer rumours to keep us going through the summer, at least until the friendlies begin again.
Today’s popular rumour is a possible return to Portugal for Beşiktaş striker Hugo Almeida. The Portuguese forward was asked about Sporting’s possible interest in him and replied positively:
“Of course I was glad my name was again linked to Sporting, but I have a contract with Beşiktaş and I am not thinking about leaving.”
The goal-scoring talents of the former Porto striker would certainly add to the forward lines, with Postiga not proving to be a true goal scorer.
