‘€30M + Mendy please’, ‘get it done before the Euro’ – Man City fans want club to sign €60m-rated defender, after going ahead of United for his signature


Some Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report that claims the club is ahead of Manchester United in the race of Sporting Lisbon star left-back Nuno Mendes.

Mendes, who has been with Sporting from the age of 10, only made his senior first-team debut under a year ago and has already attracted scouts from elite clubs across the continent.

The 18-year-old Sporting Lisbon’s wonderkid is enjoying an excellent season with the Portuguese giants, with City reportedly considering a move for the left-back ahead of the summer transfer window.

Aleksander Zinchenko, Benjamin Mendy and Joao Cancelo have shared left-back duties at the Etihad this term and City are arguably in greater need of Mendes, given Cancelo’s preferred role is from right-back, but are facing competition from Manchester United.

According to abola via Sport Witness, Manchetser City ‘are ahead of’ Manchester United in the race for Mendes, and have ‘reserved €60M + €10M in variables’ for the 18 year-old.

The report claims that Pep Guardiola considers it ‘essential’ to sign a left-back, and Mendes is gathering ‘greatest consensus’ at Manchester city.

The report adds that as Mendes has made it to Portugal’s squad for EURO 2020, a transfer is ‘unlikely’ to be completed before the start of the UEFA tournament – as it gives the player an opportunity to showcase his qualities at an ‘even more demanding level’.
