Reading boss Steve Clarke sends scouts to Estoril vs Vitoria Guimaraes
New Reading manager Steve Clarke had a scout at yesterday’s game between Portuguese sides Estoril and Vitoria Guimaraes.
The Royals’ spy was joined by representatives from clubs including Barcelona, Monaco and Celtic for the game, which ended in a 1-0 win for Estoril.
It is not clear whether the Championship side are targeting a particular player from one of the two sides or whether they were on a trawling mission.
But official scouting reports from the game, as reported by Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, show that Reading were in attendance.
