Opare, 24, terminated his contract on mutual
consent with Porto after the Stadio Dragao
side relegated him to their second rank side
after failing to reach a deal with Turkish side
Besiktas for a permanent sale of the defender. Augsburg, who have pocketed close to £18
million from the sale of Baba Rahman following
his impending sale to English champions
Chelsea. The Fuggerstädter manager Markus Weinzierl
has already acquired defender Max Philipp
from Karlsruher SC but the German gaffer
wants competition for the left-back role and
has brought the 2009 U20 FIFA World Cup
gold medalist on board. Opare’s versatility will allow him play on either
side of the lateral defence. Baba was voted
second best young player in the German top-
flight last season and Markus is working
around the clock to bring in enough quality to
fill the void created by Baba’s absence. He spent last season on loan at Turkish side
Besiktas after failing to break into the Porto
first team squad.
