Porto Pair to Leave?


With the arrivals of Magala and Defour from Standard Leige, central midfielders and central defenders are looking nervously at their possible playing time. Sereno and Ruben Micael are two of those players. Both found playing time hard to come by last season, and it looks less likely this season. 

Sereno to Koln?

Sereno was purchased by Porto in June of last year after a half-season stint with Real Valladolid. The central defender has had steep competition for playing time, in the form of Maicon, Otamendi, and Rolando, two of which are full internationals. Sereno only managed five starts in the league, with the Rolando-Maicon pairing often preferred. Koln’s sporting director is reportedly in Porto currently so that a deal can be struck between the two teams. Maybe Sereno can revitalize his career in Germany.

Ruben Micael Expected to Leave

Following the arrival of Defour to Porto, Andre Castro went out on loan to Sporting Gijon. Now, Ruben Micael is exploring similar options. Defour, who is a seasoned Belgian international, is likely to get the nod over Micael, who was used sparingly last season. According to reports coming out of Portugal, Spain is the most likely destination for the midfielder.
