Reports throughout all of Portugal, Spain, England and the Internet have current Atletico Madrid midfielder Juninho joining Porto in a "half-deal". The details are sketchy but on thing is for certain Porto do not want to waste their money and offered Atletico Madrid to pay Juninho's estimated transfer fee of 6 million UK in 2 installments of 3 million UK. Jesus Gil, Atletico Madrid's president, is trying desperately to unload the Brazilian midfielder after Atletico's terrible terrible year. Middlesbrough boss Bryan Robson has been unwilling to pay Juninho's price tag. Juninho has been a disaster since joining Atletico in '97, twice injuring himself badly. During his spell at Atletico Juninho has broken his leg and tore knee ligaments and has only been the shadow of the player he once was when he joined 'boro in 1995. This deal could really help Juninho resurrect his career. Juninho could fill in that #10 role that Porto has lacked since losing Zahovic. Olympiakos have also been rumored as potential suitors for the Brazilian.
