Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero out of Porto game

The striker, who missed Saturday’s game against Burnley, continues to suffer discomfort in his knee and will remain in Manchester.

Defender Nathan Ake is back in contention after a thigh problem and 19-year-old midfielder Tommy Doyle is included in the travelling squad.

City have already secured qualification to the round of 16 of this year’s competition, with Olympiacos and Marseille in their group along with Porto.

The Blues are top of their group with 12 points and are yet to lose a game, having conceded just once.

However, Pep Guardiola won’t be content to coast through this game – if Manchester City do beat Porto, the likelihood is that they’ll finish top of the group, securing an ‘easier’ draw at the next stage of the Champions League.

Porto defender Alex Telles heavily linked with Manchester United

Solskjaer’s only acquisition to date this summer has been Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek – something which has concerned United supporters with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City all strengthening.

Rumours of a swoop for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho have dominated the headlines, and although that continues to rumble on, it’s Porto defender Alex Telles who is now under the transfer spotlight.

Reports from Portugal claim that the 27-year-old is close to a switch to Old Trafford, with Porto keen to cash in on the Brazilian before his contract expires next summer.

Manchester United’s current left back options are Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams, but Telles looks set to join those ranks in the coming days.

Any fee is as yet unknown, with the two clubs still trying to thrash out a price.

Wolves land Porto youngster Vitinha on loan

Having smashed their club transfer record to sign Fabio Silva on Saturday, the Wanderers have taken 20-year-old midfielder Vitinha on a season-long loan from the Portuguese club with an option to buy.

The Portugal Under-21 international was handed his debut for Porto last season and made eight appearances, including two alongside Silva, as the club won both the Primeira Liga and Taca de Portugal.

Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi told the club’s official website: “Vitinha is a crucial signing and an integral component in our recruitment plan for this summer.

“He is an exciting and special young talent, with an abundance of technique and creativity, who can provide a fresh option this season.

“Vitinha’s signing demonstrates our ambition and strategy to further evolve our first team and continue to progress on the pitch.”

Further Portuguese talent set for Molineux

The promising 20-year-old will become the tenth Portuguese player at the club when the move goes through, which is more than six of the 18 teams in the Portuguese Liga NOS.

Ferreira will be available for Wolves to sign permanently for a fee of €20m, and will join up with the club to make things official after he has played for Portugal’s under-21’s alongside fellow Wolves players Ruben Vinagre and Pedro Neto.

The pair, along with the rest of the strong Iberian contingent at Molineux, should help Ferreira acclimatise easily to life in the Midlands.

Ferreira is an attacking midfielder who broke into the Porto team at the beginning of 2020, and has played eight league games for the multiple-time Portuguese champions. He has been at the club his entire career, having joined as a 13-year-old back in 2013.

His agent is Jorge Mendes, who has masterminded much of Wolves’ transfer activity in recent years, including the recent deal to sell Matt Doherty to Tottenham Hotspur.

Porto striker Luis Diaz on Spurs transfer radar

The Colombian forward is said to be on Jose Mourinho’s list of transfer targets this summer.

Diaz has bagged 14 goals and 7 assists for Porto this season and is reportedly said to have been one of Mourinho’s personal requests to the Spurs board in terms of summer signings.

Any initial Tottenham offer is expected to be in the region of €12m, with Diaz’s former club Junior Barranquilla, based in South America, due a 20% sell on fee.

However, with the striker contracted at the Liga NOS club until 2024, it’s unlikely Spurs will get him for the predicted €12m price tag.
