Manchester City have remained heavily interested in Nuno Mendes.
Sport Witness with A Bola reported that Sporting want a fair price though ‘all scenarios’ remain ‘on the table’. Sporting are to have been made aware that Mendes will indeed be leaving this Summer.
Negotiations are on as the deal could be completed after the Euros.
Pep Guardiola has asked for him and he could be the first signing this window.
City are thinking of a deal more in the region of €50M or less as in accordance with their budget.
Other deals have been bandied abut including a swap deal involving Pedro Porro, Lukas Nmecha and Yangel Herrera.
The primary one being Porro + Nmecha and 25-30M. A feasible yet complicated deal.
What makes this deal credible is the veracity of Portuguese media all but confirming Mendes will leave and that City are clear front runners.
Time will tell.
