However, negotiations are reportedly not going to be easy. The player is still reluctant to join the second tier of English football.
BURNLEY AND JOVANE CABRAL TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Jovane Cabral is not in the manager’s plans. He has also fallen out of favor. The attacker spent his last season on loan with Lazio. However, the Italian giants have decided not to sign him permanently. Although, it seems he has impressed Burnley and Vincent Kompany with his performances. The Championship are now reportedly keen to sign him on a permanent deal this summer.
However, there are still a number of problems that exist in the deal. The attacker is not reportedly keen on a move to the Championship. He is also not happy with the salary offer made to him. Although, Sporting CP have accepted the offer made to them. Burnley are reportedly again going to make an improved contract offer to sign the attacker.
SHOULD VINCENT KOMPANY CONTINUE HIS PURSUIT TO SIGN THE ATTACKER?
If the earlier reports are to be believed then the club and Kompany should pursue other targets. It is clear the player will come for money and not ambition. Whereas, other players have come here believing Kompany’s ambition and the club’s ambition. Hence, Burnley and the manager would like players that really want to be at Turf Moor.
If Cabral does not want to play in the Championship, then the Clarets should not waste their time and energy behind him. However, it seems the Clarets are not willing to give up on the signing. Kompany reportedly wants the club to try till the last moment to sign the attacker. He is also trying to convince the player to join the project at Burnley.
Burnley return to action vs Watford on Friday night. Some reports state that the club have seen € 4 million for Cabral, with a € 1 million bonus accepted by Sporting CP. The Portuguese giants are very keen to get the attacker off their books if the bid is right.
