Report: Sporting CP eye Ezequiel Barco as possible Bruno Fernandes replacement

Atlanta United’s transfer policy of buying young stars, developing them further, and selling for profit could possibly bear fruit once again. Portuguese outlet Record is reporting that Sporting CP have identified Ezequiel Barco as a transfer target this winter, if the club sell star midfielder Bruno Fernandes.

The report states that the Liga NOS stalwarts would use the massive profit from a sale of Fernandes to fund a move for the younger Barco who they see as an exciting prospect. Fernandes has been linked to many of the top clubs around Europe, specifically some of the top clubs in the Premier League.
