Sporting Lisbon have dismissed suggestions that they will sell Manchester City target William Carvalho for €30m.
The Portugal international, 24, has established himself as one of Europe’s most-coveted midfielders over the past few years.
City, Liverpool and Valencia, as well as a number of other European clubs, are believed to be on his trail but Sporting president Bruno de Carvalho insists any suitors will have to fork out significantly more than €30m to secure the anchorman’s services.
“Is Carvalho going to leave for €30m? For that price I send a boot without laces,” he is quoted as saying in AS.
