Looking for reinforcements on the left side of their defense, the Sky Blues have reportedly targeted young Nuno Mendes, already watched by Real Madrid.
According to information from Daily Mail, Manchester City have joined the race to recruit Sporting Portugal’s nugget Nuno Mendes. At only 18 years old, the left-back has become one of Sporting’s strong men and above all one of the most coveted prodigies in European football. Liverpool had notably tried a first approach last winter around 22 million euros. An offer quickly swept away by the leaders of the current leader of Liga NOS, well aware of the player’s value.
Since the list of contenders continues to grow. First favorite for the signing of the Portuguese prodigy, Real Madrid must now face competition from Manchester United, Liverpool, Juventus Turin and therefore Manchester City. Enough to raise the stakes very high for Nuno Mendes, who has a release clause of around 70 million euros.
