Porto swoop for Quintero

Porto have signed Colombia midfielder Juan Quintero from Italian

side Pescara on a four-year contract.

The 20-year-old arrives at the Estadio do Dragao for a 5million

euros fee while his new contract contains a 40million euros release


Quintero told fcporto.pt: “I always wanted to come to this club.

I come here with great hopes of winning titles.

“I am very happy, for this is an important step in my career.

Now my main concern is working hard every day.”

The attacking midfielder scored three goals in four appearances

for Colombia in the recently concluded Under-20 World Cup in Turkey

and he made his senior debut against Cameroon in 2012.

Quintero had also attracted the interest of Serie A giants Inter

Milan and Udinese during his only season at Pescara, which ended

with relegation to Serie B in May.
