Matias Fernandez Would Be 'Delighted' To Join Sporting CP - Agent

Matias Fernandez's agent has revealed that the Chilean would be "delighted" to join Sporting CP from Villarreal this summer.

The youngster is widely expected to leave the Spanish club during the transfer window with Sporting seeming to be the likely destination.

Yesterday it was reported that the Portuguese side were keen on the Chilean, and now the player's agent has confirmed the interest.

Speaking to A Bola about the situation, Alejandro Santiesteban admitted that whilst there hasn't been an offer, there are talks.

"Matias sees Sporting as a great club, a very prestigious one, who are always involved in the title race," he explained.

"Both clubs are in touch, nevertheless, we are yet to receive an official offer."

It is thought that Fernandez would cost Sporting in the region of €5 million, although there is a chance they could take him on loan.

This would be the preferred option for the deal according to sources and at a young age, Villarreal may decide that loaning him out would be the best decision too.
