Gyokeres’ eye-watering €100m (£86m) release clause at Estadio Jose Alvalade has been well documented, but Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport indicate that Sporting could be prepared to agree a deal for half that price.

‘I want to win the league and the cup with Sporting – that’s where I’m putting all my energy and strength.

‘It’s a sign that I’ve been performing well, but it’s not something I take too seriously.

‘It’s just speculation, but it’s good and fun to talk about.

‘We’ll see what happens in the summer, I don’t know what will happen. But I really like Sporting and I don’t feel stressed at all for what’s to come.’
