UEFA finalizing plans for Champions League final in Portugal.


UEFA is finalizing plans with Portugal to act as replacemen­t host for the all-English Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City.

The UEFA showpiece is set to be moved from Istanbul to Portugal just like last year due to pandemic issues in Turkey, people with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

The 50,000-capacity Estádio do Dragão in Porto has been lined up for the May 29 final after talks with the British government stalled on Monday to use Wembley Stadium.
