Sporting open talks for Portugal left-back Vitorino Antunes

Sporting CP have entered talks over a potential deal for Vitorino Antunes, according to Record.

Antunes, 33, is a free agent after his Getafe contract expired and is on Sporting’s list of options for the summer.

Left-back Antunes, capped 13 times by Portugal, left his homeland for Roma in 2007 and has been playing in Spain recently.

His performances in the 2018-19 season led to him being named in the La Liga Team of the Season.

Any move to Sporting would depend on the futures of left-back pair Marcos Acuna and Nuno Mendes.

Argentine international Acuna, 28, has been linked with a move to Serie A giants Inter.

And while Sporting hope to keep Man United target Mendes, 18, a huge offer could tempt them.

Antunes is the leading candidate to replace either player in the transfer window.
