Nacional secure Orlando Sa loan

Alvinegros beat out island rivals Maritimo for striker

orlando-sa3.jpgNacional were successful in acquiring the services of striker Orlando Sa as the Madeira outfit beat local rivals Maritimo for the FC Porto owned marksman.

It was a toss up for weeks as to where Sa would end up as there appeared no room within the Porto ranks for the Portuguese international.

Both Nacional and Maritimo were locked in a hard fought battle as both sides try to firm up their squads ahead of the 2010/11 Liga Zon Sagres season.

Maritimo might have thought that they had the edge as Porto are trying to land striker Kleber and successfully agreed a deal with Atletico Mineiro, but the verde-rubros actually hold the key in the transfer and have been standing firm throughout the negotiation process.

The fact that Sa will be playing at the Choupana just might have given Maritimo more reason not to relinquish the Brazilian forward that Porto have sought after.

Sweet mother of Mary, I had to read it in order to believe it. You're making fun of me liking Real Madrid and the team itself. You, a Porto fan? Weren't there recorded phone conversations posted on the internet of your team fixing matches?

First of all, do you think the people who run this site would only want people of support Portuguese teams visiting? Second, is this site not for everyone? Third, there are three Portuguese figures on the team.

Sweet Jesus, please get your head out of you know where.
Hey you two!

The only thing that's insignificant, besides your crap team, is you. Hulk is awesome at attacking stewards and your club is fantastic at match fixing and bribing referees.

I apologize if I hurt your FEELING. Your team is a joke and not everyone is a Benfica fan. Paranoid much? Jackass!

I just hope he plays well and Nacional will groom him into a great striker. God knows Portugal need one badly.
Maritimo would have been better

I have found Nacional to be the stronger team between the two over the past few years but Maritimo are getting Europa League action which would have provided stronger experience for the player. I guess it could have come down on how much Nacional was willing to pay for the one year loan deal.
Porto are a mess

Farias wants out, they loan Sa, can't get Kleber and the see the Walter deal collapse. Some great negotiators.
