Having revealed his wish to join a Premier League club or a Championship club, Moussa Marega future with FC Porto have now been thrown in doubts.
Following the 27-year-old’s revelation, some English clubs have sparked an interest in the Porto forward.
According to Portuguese news outlet, A Bola, who reported that the Brighton and Hove Albion is one of the many suitors interested in Marega. Reveals that Brighton are the first to make an official contact with the club over the 27-year-old star, with Manchester United also reported to have been interested in the player during the winter transfer window.
“I, we [Porto] had a beautiful year and with this title of champion that is a huge pride. I’m coming out of a year with 23 goals in all competitions,” Marega said via Goal.
“For me, I think this is perhaps the best time to try my luck elsewhere, to live a new experience, to know a new championship, the Premier League, for example.
“And it hurts me to say that because I am very attached to this club, to its supporters who give me a lot.
“I like this championship for a long time. At the same time, who does not like the Premier League. It’s a very big league, with very big players.
“It’s flattering when clubs are interested in you, but I have always dreamed of playing there. I want to be happy, with my family, in a championship that I love.”
Moussa Marega, who was impressive for the Portuguese club last season having scored 23 goals in 41 appearances to secure the Primeira Liga title, could be on his way out of the club this summer.
