Talented schemer played for Portugal’s boss Paulo Bento as a teenager, so the pair know all about each other’s attributes.

A modern-day attacking midfielder, who can operate in a range of positions, Moutinho made a name for himself at Sporting Lisbon.

At 20 became the club’s youngest skipper.

However, became despised for joining hated rivals Porto. Now at Monaco.

Has a great eye for a pass.
