Sky Sports have revealed that Manchester City could stand to earn almost £12m if Tottenham meet Pedro Porro’s release clause, owing to the sell-on clause that the reigning Premier League champions have for the right-back.

It appears only a matter of time before Spurs announce Porro as their second signing of the January transfer window after they confirmed their capture of Arnaut Danjuma on loan earlier this week.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the right-back has already agreed on a five-and-a-half-year contract with Spurs, and both Sporting and the Premier League club are ‘confident’ of getting the deal over the line soon.

Sky Sports explain that Man City stand to gain considerably from Porro’s impending move to Spurs as they have a 30 per cent sell-on clause on the Spaniard.

The clause was added when the 23-year-old made the permanent switch from the Etihad to Lisbon last summer for £7.2m on the back of a successful loan spell at the Jose Alvalade Stadium.

It is revealed that if Spurs pay Porro’s full £39m release clause, Pep Guardiola’s men would stand to make £11.7m from the deal.

I wonder if Spurs and Sporting are working out a way to structure the deal such that the Portuguese club could hold on to as much of the fee as possible. That might potentially be the reason for the delay in the negotiations between the two clubs.
