Price hike for midfielder
Porto have upped the ante over the sale of Joao Moutinho and told both Tottenham and Manchester United he will cost £30m.
Spurs and United have been linked with the Portuguese playmaker as they look to add quality to their respective squads for the forthcoming season.
Moutinho is seen as the natural successor to Luka Modric at White Hart Lane if the Croatian, as expected, moves to Real Madrid, and Andre Villas-Boas knows him well from his time with Porto.
Sir Alex Ferguson is lining him up if he can't land Modric himself, which he still has not given up hope of doing, but Porto have now said he will not come cheap.
Moutinho, who has 48 caps for Portugal, is currently under contract until 2015, so they will not be pushed into selling and their boss Vitor Pereira claimed this week the only way Porto would sell Moutinho is if interested parties matched his buyout clause of £30 million.
"Clubs cannot just not sell. We really want him to stay but this is football and there are such things as release clauses," Pereira told Abola.
"The only thing we can do is achieve results with what we have got."
