Portugal under-20 star flattered by Premier League interest

Published 1 Comments

Sporting Lisbon star Bruma has admitted he's honoured to be linked with big clubs in the Premier League, but insisted he's focussed on his under-20 World Cup with Portugal, according to talkSPORT.

The 18-year-old winger has been linked with a large number of Premier League clubs - most recently Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have been tipped to be scouting him.

He's been billed as the 'new Cristiano Ronaldo' by some reports, and has taken the under-20 World Cup by storm - scoring five goals in his first three matches.

Bruma's brother Buomesca plays in England for Fulham, and with the strong interest from the English top flight, he'd been tipped to follow this summer.

But the player insists he's not thinking about his future, and instead just wants to focus on his summer with the national team.

Speaking to Portuguese newspaper A Bola about reports linking him with the Premier League, Bruma said: "It's always nice to hear and to know of the interest of the big clubs but I'm not thinking about it.

"I have people working on these issues and for now my main concern is to help my team to get as far in the under-20 World Cup."

Reports earlier this month quoted Bruma rejecting the possibility of leaving Sporting. He's made 13 league appearances for the Liga Sagres giants, and is reportedly keen to sign a new deal with the club.
