Reports: Kevin Prince Boateng set to join Sporting Lisbon

Kevin-Prince Boateng will sign for Sporting Lisbon today according to leading Portuguese outlet A Bola.

The former Portsmouth and AC Milan midfielder is jetting into Portugal to sign a two-year deal with the Lions.

He was let go by Schalke at the end of last season and has been linked with several clubs during the transfer window though he has struggled to reach an agreement with any of them due to his high wage demands.

 

The midfielder earns in the region of 8 million euros a year and it is unlikely the Portuguese club will pay the high wages.
