Gelson Martins Attracting Interest From Top European Clubs

Sporting Lisbon winger Gelson Martins is attracting interest from across Europe, according to his agent.

Gelson Martins, 22, has been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Man Utd and Liverpool over the past few seasons.

Ulisses Santos, the winger’s representative, has confirmed that there is interest in his client, who he feels is good enough to thrive away from the Portuguese capital.

“He’s a player with a lot of suitors. There are a lot of clubs interested in him, from La Liga, the Premier League and the Bundesliga,” Santos told Sport.

“As a professional, Gelson has to be ready to leave at any moment or to stay. He plays for the national team and he wants to win titles. Clubs in Portugal have less financial power and need to balance things, be that with transfers or television rights.

“He is a phenomenal player and I don’t think he’s inferior to other players that have left Sporting, like [Luis] Figo, Simao, [Ricardo] Quaresma and Nani.”
