Nuno Mendes rumors are back, this time Manchester City claim the clubs remain apart on valuation. City aren’t willing to go over €30m but Sporting want €50m. (H/T TNC LIVE)

It’s an interesting dilemma. Mendes would no doubt add value to this team and we would need a fullback if Ben Mendy departs. He is a good to great fullback though does present some defensive question marks.

However, I don’t see the merits in spending this much for him when Oleks Zinchenko has proven good enough to be City’s starting left back.

I would much rather signing Antonee Robinson as valuable depth for under 10m than Mendes for 30m+.

Trust in Pep and Txiki is still strong so I will give them the benefit of the doubt, but City have much higher targets in the several strikers they are being linked to and Jack Grealish.

Would you want Nuno Mendes?
