Barça bid for Nuno Mendes

The Barça club is now the most interested, together with Manchester City, to take over the young left-back of Sporting de Portugal. Madrid has been somewhat behind.


Nuno Mendes is being one of the sensations of the Portuguese league this season. His great season at Sporting de Portugal has earned him to be called up for the first time this Tuesday by the senior team. With only 18 years his irruption this season has attracted the attention of the greats of Europe. For months, Madrid has followed his evolutions closely and is one of the players that the white club has on its list to replace the more than likely departure of Marcelo this summer. However, as As has learned, in recent days Barcelona has taken the lead and is, together with Manchester City, the team that shows the most interest in Nuno Mendes at the moment.

Barcelona does not have Junior Firpo for next season and the one chosen to fill his position is Sporting de Portugal's full-back. In fact, the Lisbon club is already aware that the Barça club's sports management is following in the footsteps of its footballer. Curiously, the former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has also been impressed by the season that Nuno Mendes is taking place and has given the go-ahead for Manchester City's sports management to try his signing. In this case, the English club has contacted the player's environment to convey their interest. Manchester City is considering the idea of making him a long-term contract and leaving him on loan to Sporting de Portugal next season.However, there are more teams interested in Nuno Mendes. As As reported on January 1, Liverpool, Juventus, PSG and Manchester United are also closely following their developments. The full-back last January renewed his contract with Sporting de Portugal until 2025 and his termination clause became 25 million. This season he has established himself as one of the pillars of Rúben Amorim at Sporting de Portugal and has played 25 games. Add one goal and two assists.

Nuno Mendes was exultant this Tuesday after being called up for the first time by the Portugal senior team: "It is a reward for me and for Sporting for what they have done with young players. That is why it is my turn to continue to show what I have learned so far and give joy to the fans, "he told Sporting TV, where he also thanked the rest of the squad for this call:" My teammates played a very important role in this call. It is thanks to their help that they called me to the national team because nobody plays alone ".
