FC Porto has this incredible ability to relax despite the departures of key players. Thanks to the best recruiters in the world undoubtedly, the Portuguese club finds precious players that are then sold at very expensive. By bringing together 11 players went through the club, or still in it, FC Porto could have an unstoppable team. Here is the result.
The goalkeeper has not really had a chance with Porto, which could also regret it. From 2009 to 2012, Beto is the lining of Helton and decides to go to Seville to gain playing time. Football fans will remember Beto as the player who was on fire in the final of the Europa League between Sevilla and Benfica last year. He stopped two penalty kicks and sent a strong signal to Porto, who is always having trouble with the goalkeeper post.
The most expensive defender in football history! Sold to Manchester City for nearly $57 million, Eliaquim Mangala was probably overestimated. However, the French is a very good defender who has brought joy to Porto from 2011 to 2014. If his adaptation to the UK in somehow difficult, his quality cannot be questioned.
A hinge Pepe-Mangala, would be quite strong! From 2004 to 2007, the Portuguese made massacre at FC Porto. His excellent performance allowed him to join Real for $34 million where he will become a key part of the team, to great displeasure of Raphaël Varane...
Danilo is likely to become a great player. A great right side, the Brazilian had several amazing performances since his arrival in 2012 to FC Porto. At 23, he made a convincing start to his career, which led to his selection. Real Madrid is convinced: Danilo is a jewel. The Spanish club has offered $35 million to Porto for his services for the 2015-2016 seasons! An incredible amount of money that will hopefully be a source of comfort for his Portuguese fans after his.
Actually property of Inter Milan, Alvaro Pereira is not having the career he hoped but his talent is undeniable. In 2010, the left-back is considered one of the best at his position. He joined Inter in 2012 for $11 million and reunites with his former teammate from Porto Fredy Guarin.
Arrived in 2007 in Porto, Fernando managed to win 12 major titles in 236 games only, which means he won one title every 19.6 matches! The Europa League gleaned in 2011 will probably remain his greatest success. The midfielder joined Manchester City in 2014 and had a little bit more difficulty imposing his skills.
Ancient metronome of his team, João Moutinho proved himself to be player in the system of FC Porto. In May 2013, he joined Monaco in the company of his team-mates James Rodriguez and Falcao. Difficult to replace as his influence was enormous in Porto.
Danilo, Brahimi is probably the most efficient player of FC Porto this season. A place in this list of 11 players is well deserved. Arrived in Granada in 2014, Yacine Brahimi confirms all the hopes placed in him. Exceptional dribbler, the Franco-Algerian does great work and should probably reach a great club.
Officially considered one of the best young players in the world, James has quickly shown his potential, particularly in the colors of FC Porto between 2010 and 2013. At that time, the left handed made proud the amateurs of career mode Fifa. Young, fast, dribbler and finisher, the Colombian has everything of a great player. After 3 years at Porto, he joined Monaco then shined bright at the 2014 World Cup. He then went on with Madrid where he finally blossomed. Definitely a great future ahead.
Unexpected treasure! Straight from the Japanese league, Hulk arrives in Porto in 2008 and crushes everything in his path. He won 10 titles in 4 years and really represents his team. In 2012, Hulk is sold at Zenith St Petersburg for $68 million. An exceptional gain for FC Porto.
Mocked for his poor performances since joining Manchester United, Falcao had brought great joy to Porto from 2009. Key role in the success of the Portuguese in the Europa League during the 2011 season, he made a stunning season and also allows to Porto achieve the hat-trick! He then will be transferred to Atletico Madrid at the end of this wonderful season against a check of $45 million. One of the best strikers in the world during that time.
If FC Porto would have undoubtedly reached satisfaction with these Eleven, the club also sold some players for huge sums in the past: Anderson, Lisandro, Lucho, Deco, Carvalho, Bosingwa, Jardel, Guarin, or even Bruno Alves could be added to this list.
