Porro completed a loan switch from Sporting Lisbon during the final minutes of the January transfer window after a month of speculation and talks between the two clubs. Spurs had held a long-standing interest in the Spain international, who will join permanently in the summer for a 45 million euro (£39.5million) fee. Porro has faced Tottenham twice in this season's Champions League and trained with his new team-mates for the first time on Wednesday but is likely to follow the path of other recent signings by biding their time before forcing their way into the starting line-up.
Guardiola's Manchester City failed in their protracted attempts to prise the England captain away from Tottenham in the summer of 2021. The club instead turned their attention to Erling Haaland and this time landed their target, with the Norwegian moving to the Etihad Stadium last year. In terms of goals, that deal has proved a huge success with the prolific Haaland having netted 31 times in 27 appearances this term.
The former City defender may follow the path of other new signings by starting among the substitutes.
