Dennis Rodman says he's 'trying to open a door' in North Korea
Yes, Dennis Rodman is back in the news and once again it has nothing to do with his legendary prowess on the basketball court. Pinkston said the trip was likely part of an effort by the North's foreign ministry to ease tensions with Washington .

Chelsea and Liverpool are mentioned as the only possibilities, and it's claimed that whoever makes a better bid will take him. Since then, the now 20-year-old collected 56 appearances at Porto, though majority (38) came in the 2015-16 season when he was under the guidance of current Spanish national team manager Julen Lopetegui.

Arsenal have also been interested in the youngster in recent seasons.

While the youngster reportedly informed Porto past year that he was keen to stay with the club for at least one more season to further develop, it is rumoured that the twice-capped global could be coaxed away from the Primeira Liga side this summer.

Any club hoping to land the Portuguese youngster will need to spend big however, with £30million an early suggested transfer fee.

Neves has been at Porto since he was eight years old, and made his first-team debut for the side as a 17-year-old.
