Nuno Mendes, the Portuguese fullback turning heads in football circles. He is now being heavily linked with Manchester CIty and could even be used as a piece in City loanee’s final deal with Sporting. Pedro Porro, playing fullback for Sporting has shined in a loan from City and the Portuguese team wants to keep him.
Initial rumors peg the deal for Porro as 8m Euros. So, according to reports today, a deal could be struck with Porro staying and Mendes leaving for a 25-30m Euros price. That way Porro stays where has played extremely well and Mendes gets his big club move.
That would then make City’s interest in 3 players as the most likely to get done as the club chase Erling Haaland with vigor and still remain heavily interested in Denis Zakaria.
All three would make for a perfect summer. Mendes has shown class and poise even earning a call up to the full fledged international side, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo and company.
A good player at a good price. City needs to get this done while the interest is still hot.
Thoughts on Mendes?
