Atletico make Sporting enquiry

28 October 2009 06:41
Atletico Madrid have enquired about Sporting defender Daniel Carrico, according to reports in Spain. The 21-year-old, who is also interesting Manchester City, is wanted by Atletico for the start of next season. The Portugal Under-21 ace has been winning rave reviews with his displays and is contracted to Sporting until 2013. Carrico has a €20million (£17.9m) release clause in his contract, something that could hinder struggling Atletico but not City. The promising defender has been a regular for Paulo Bento this season and it remains to be seen whether he is ready to move on. City already have a solid relationship with the Portuguese outfit having loaned them striker Felipe Caicedo for the 2009/10 campaign.
