Sporting accept Veloso & Moutinho could leave  

Tuesday, 16 June 2009

Perennial Premier League targets Joao Moutinho and Miguel Veloso could both leave Sporting Lisbon this summer according to manager Paolo Bento. The Portuguese pair, who have often found themselves linked with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton, Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers, are known to be keen on testing themselves away from their homeland despite their coach wanting to retain their services at the Estadio Jose Alvalade.

Speaking to SIC Noticias, Bento revealed:

“I have Joao Moutinho for next season as things stand, but things can change.

“Sporting have an idea of what we want for next season.

“Miguel Veloso is a player who is under contract until 2013 and, like everyone else, he could be sold or he could stay.

“If he stays, he will be treated as he always has been, playing in the position that best serves the team.”
