Miguel Pinho, the agent of Sporting Lisbon wonder kid Nuno Mendes, had held talks with Manchester United.
Mendes who can play as a left-back or a left-winger is one of the most sought players in Europe right now but it is believed that United is ahead in the pecking order for his signature.
Correio da Manha, as translated by Sport Witness now reports that Pinho was at Old Trafford for their Tuesday night’s game against Fulham to hold talks with United over a possible move for his client.
The report adds that the talented 18-year-old could have an asking price as high as €70million with his club not willing to sell the player as they feel he will be an important player for them in next season’s Champions League.
Another report from Record, also translated by Sport Witness, states that Mendes’ agent Pinho could also hold talks with City while he’s in Manchester.
#ManCity are planning a total package of €60M for Nuno Mendes: A £44.3M initial fee + Pedro Porro. @ManCity are yet to make a formal offer but will make one in the coming weeks with Pep Guardiola a huge admirer. Mendes is keen on a move to England.— City Xtra (@City_Xtra) May 14, 2021
