Barcelona monitoring Sporting CP keeper Luis Maximiano

Barcelona are keeping an eye on highly-rated Sporting CP goalkeeper Luis Maximiano, A BOLA reports.

The Catalan club are looking for a goalkeeper with the ability to challenge number one Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Current deputy Neto only joined from Valencia a year ago, costing Barca an initial fee of €26m.

But because of their financial issues, Barca are reportedly open to offers for the Brazilian.

21-year-old Maximiano has become a regular for Sporting since December, establishing himself as their first choice shot-stopper.

According to A BOLA, Barcelona have a definite interest but have not yet made any moves to sign Maximiano.

However, they add that ‘it is likely’ that there will soon be progress with Barca’s interest.

AC Milan also have the Portugal under-21 international on their radar in case Gianluigi Donnarumma leaves the club.

A transfer fee of €16m for Maximiano is spoken of in Spain. In the meantime, Sporting are working on a contract renewal for him.
