Fabio Coentrao Confirms Sporting Lisbon Move

Fabio Coentrao has confirmed his impending move from Real Madrid to Sporting Lisbon.

The 29-year-old left-back reportedly had been close to a loan move to the Portuguese side, and he took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce the switch.

Posting a picture with his family from Sporting’s Estadio Jose Alvalade, he wrote: “Very happy to have the opportunity to play for this great club.”

Coentrao has played for Madrid since a 2011 move from Benfica but made just six appearances in all competitions for Los Blancos last season. The Portugal international spent the 2015-16 campaign on loan to Monaco.
