Pedro Porro, a right-back for Tottenham Hotspur, is allegedly open to rejoining Manchester City this summer.

After a stint at sister club Girona, Porro spent three years at Man City from 2019 and 2022, however he never played a minute for Pep Guardiola’s team.

Instead, the 24-year-old spent time on loan at Real Valladolid and Sporting Lisbon, where he excelled, before making a permanent move to the latter in the summer of 2022.

With 98 appearances, 12 goals, and 20 assists in his career for Sporting, Porro’s outstanding play with the Portuguese powerhouses attracted the attention of Tottenham, who signed the right-back in January of last year on a first-ever loan agreement with a buyout clause of €45 million (£38.7 million) for the following summer.

Since then, the two-cap Spain international has become an indispensable part of Ange Postecoglou’s team, racking up seven assists in 19 Premier League starts this year in addition to scoring an incredible long-range goal that sealed the match in Friday’s FA Cup third-round victory against Burnley.

Porro appears to be in competition at Spurs, where he has a deal through the summer of 2028.

Spurspur News, however, claims that Man City is thinking of making a summer raid for the offensively-minded right-back, who is thought to be a long-term replacement for Kyle Walker.

The story further states that Porro would find it “terribly hard” to decline a return to the Etihad and a second opportunity to work with Guardiola, his fellow Spaniard.

La Liga powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona, who have previously been linked to the right-back, are reportedly considering a rivalry with Man City.

Porro is nine years younger than Walker, 33, who was strongly rumoured to be leaving Man City for Bayern Munich in the summer of last year.

But in the end, a transfer fell through, and Walker signed a new contract at the Etihad that is valid through June 2026.

The England international has been a regular player under Guardiola this season after it was reported over the summer that he was one of five Man City players chosen to captain the team as a member of a senior leadership group after a squad vote.

In the first half of the 2023–24 season, Walker has made 27 appearances for the Citizens in all competitions.

Wearing the captain’s armband, he also had the honour of lifting the FIFA Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

Walker has made 281 appearances for City since signing in 2017 and has won 16 trophies in total, including five Premier League crowns and one Champions League.

Although he has recently played more as a midfielder, Rico Lewis, a 19-year-old academy product, has emerged as one of the club’s finest prospects over the previous 12 months, thus Walker is not the only right-back option available to Guardiola.
