‘Super League’ Clubs Set To Battle For Teenage Sporting Lisbon Prospect, Quaresma

Guess who’s next off the conveyor belt at famed Sporting Lisbon academy? You might have heard, but Eduardo Quaresma really looks the real deal.

Recall that Academia Cristiano Ronaldo has produced the likes of Luis Figo, Joao Moutinho, Ricardo Quaresma and of course, Ronaldo. So what do we have here this time around?

And you guess it’s really it when even Sporting fans already sing that ‘You’ll never get past ‘Speed Wall’!

Quaresma burst onto the scene this season after starring for the Primeira Liga first-team back in June. He’s never looked back ever since.

While Sporting will be reluctant to let go of their prized gem, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Juventus, Inter and Atletico Madrid have all been linked with moves for the defender. And as you know, money talks. Even a £5million plus player bid from AC Milan last year was outrightly rebuffed.

Not to forget that the 19-year-old is a distant relative to Brazilian legend Zico. Sounds familiar, yeah?
