Ricardo Costa could return to Porto

Experienced centreback Ricardo Costa could be one of a number of players brought to Porto next season. 

The 38-year old has just come off a season of captaining Tondela, leading his side to a narrow escape from relegation.

Costa previously left Porto 12 years ago at the age of 26, when he departed the Portuguese giants to join Wolfsburg after spending 6 seasons with the Dragons.

Indeed, since he last left Porto, he has played for 7 different teams from across the continent, from Germany to Spain and Switzerland to Greece. He even had a brief stint in Qatar for Al Sailiya.

However, according to the latest edition of A Bola, Costa could now be set for a surprise return to his former side, who are short of centrebacks after the departure of Eder Militão and Felipe to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid respectively.

It is unclear whether he would be part of the senior side or the B team, the latter a logical option which would offer the younger players in the side a terrific leader and mentor.

Costa has played for Portugal 22 times in total - his last appearance for his country coming in 2014 in a 1-0 home loss to Albania in the Euro 2016 qualifiers.

Guimarães star Tozé set to leave at the end of the season amid interest from overseas

Vitoria SC midfielder Tozé is to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of the current campaign.

Tozé has been a top performer for Guimarães this season, predominantly used on the right wing and contributing 5 goals and 3 assists in his 24 league outings.

His efforts have helped Guimarães earn a fifth place spot in the Portuguese top fight.

Some of his goals have been crucial, his strike against Sporting earlier this season the only one of the game, earning his side an impressive 3 points against one of the traditional "Big Three".

He also bagged a goal against Porto to help Guimarães come from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at the Dragão, one of the more surprising comebacks you're likely to see. His brace against Feirense also meant his side earned a crucial 2-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Feirense.

It is no wonder, therefore, that Vitoria are keen on extending Tozé's contract beyond the end of next season.

However, due to financial limitations, meeting his demands has proven difficult, and with wealthier clubs interested in the 26-year old midfielder, it was always going to be impossible to keep hold of him.

Two clubs have emerged as frontrunners to sign Tozé, with current Turkish strugglers Fenerbahce keen on bolstering their squad.

Turkish table-toppers Istanbul Basaksehir are also interested in bringing him in.
