João Mário's agent has confirmed that Liverpool's bid for his client was rejected by Sporting Lisbon this week.

In an interview with Record, Kia Joorabchian said: “A European champion must be rewarded. From now on, we either discuss a new contract or the sale to another club.”

“Sporting received four offers. Inter Milan and Liverpool, certainly, with amounts between 35 and 40 million, plus bonuses. Sporting turned down all bids.”

PSG and Chelsea are said to be the other two clubs interested in signing the Portugal international.
