Manchester City: Sky Blues buzz as Txiki Begiristain eyes Nuno Mendes - Manchester City Transfer Rumours

According to a report by Calciomercato.it, via City Xtra, the Sky Blues and sporting director Txiki Begiristain are in ‘pole position’ to sign Sporting Lisbon defender Nuno Mendes despite interest from AC Milan, Juventus and Napoli – prompting many supporters to buzz at this news.

Mendes has been a regular in defence for the Portuguese giants this season, starting 19 Liga NOS matches and managing an impressive 1.6 tackles and 2.3 interceptions per 90 (WhoScored).

Flocking to this claim on Mendes, who could well become a part of City’s stellar Portuguese contingent, many supporters buzzed at this claim that Begiristain and Pep Guardiola are leading the race.

Find all of their verdicts down below.
