A post on LinkedIn reveals that at least two clubs are for sale in Portugal.

One of them is a first-tier club - not a top club, but good enough to feature regularly in the Europa League. Price: €15 million.

"They need capital for a new long-term strategic plan," says the man behind the teaser on LinkedIn.

Sources within the mergers and acquisitions industry say that a lot of Portuguese clubs are currently looking for a change of ownership.

Their for-sale statuses were revealed via a post on LinkedIn with the title: "2 iconic Portuguese football clubs for sale." The price tags? €15 million and €8 million, respectively.
