Porto to Sell Meireles Following World Cup


F.C. Porto have recently stated that they plan to allow Portuguese midfielder Raul Meireles, who has enjoyed a splendid season, to leave after the World Cup. Valencia, PSG, Everton, and Sevilla are all fighting to sign Meireles, who is slowly becoming one of Europe’s hottest prospects. Sevilla look to be closest to his signature, with a 12 million euro deal almost ironed out.

I think that Porto’s decision to not let him leave until after the World Cup is a smart one. It eliminates the possibility that he will fail to settle in at Sevilla, and lose his form, which would be a tragedy for the Seleccao. Meireles has most recently involved in the National Team with his goal against Bosnia which sealed Portugal’s passage into the World Cup.
