⚽ Benfica, Sporting CP target Real Madrid outcast Fabio Coentrao ⚽



Real Madrid fullback Fabio Coentrao is set to move back to Portugal.


Coentrão, 29, could be set for a return to the Primeira Liga in the summer with both his former club Benfica and city rivals Sporting CP interested in signing him.


O Jogo reports that Coentrão’s former coach at Benfica, Jorge Jesús, who is now in the dugout at Sporting, is interested in bringing the player back to Lisbon.


However, similar reports state that Benfica are considering a move to re-sign the Portugal international, with Coentrão always confessing himself to be a firm benfiquista.
