West Bromwich Albion to pick up Primeira Liga star for JUST £1m?

rolando.jpgWest Bromwich Albion fans are joyful in the Football Transfer Tavern as their club are set to snap up a Portuguese international defender for a bargain price.

According to The Mirror, the Baggies are set to steal Porto’s out-of-favour defender Rolando for a cut price of just £1 million.

The Primeira Liga giants are prepared to offload him and will struggle to demand a large fee after freezing him out this season which has naturally made the player unhappy.

Baggies boss Alan Irvine could potentially grab an experienced central defender who has picked up 19 caps for Portugal while also featuring in the Champions League.

That said, punters are predicting a fiercely contested battle to land his signature with heavyweights Inter Milan and Galatasaray both keeping tabs on the situation.

The 6 ft 2 in defender has been linked to Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers in past but now it looks as though a move to The Hawthorns is his most realistic destination, giving him the opportunity to play in the best league in the world.

However, he may be tempted with the high chance of winning trophies in Turkey with Galatasary’s consistently involved in the Champions League meaning they can pay much higher wages than West Brom.
