Manchester United: Red Devils rejected by wonderkid who shares agent with Bruno Fernandes

Manchester United: Red Devils rejected by wonderkid who shares agent with Bruno Fernandes - Manchester United Transfer Rumours

Manchester United are keen to add to their growing pool of young talent, as the Red Devils are linked to Jadon Sancho and Thiago Almada

Now, reports have emerged that the club are interested in Sporting Libson teenager Nuno Mendes.

Ed Woodward is ready to spend £10m on the defender, who has one year left on his current contract. However, according to A Bola, as per ESPN, Mendes has reportedly rejected United, as he is set to sign a new deal with Sporting.

The highly-rated 19-year-old, has attracted attention from Nani, who gave a glowing review to the club’s scouts.

While little is known about the youngster, as it is difficult to find any credible stats on him, he has made one senior appearance for the Green and Whites so far.

The left-back, who shares an agent with Bruno Fernandes, can also play as a centre-back and his versatility is surely an added bonus.

Big things are clearly expected of him, as the Portuguese newspaper claims the contract contains a release clause of €45m, which roughly equates to £40m.

Although Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to have missed out on Mendes for the time being, the board will be able to work out his valuation now, which could pave the way for them to sign him further down the line.

Moreover, it saves them the embarrassment of taking a gamble on a teen who is still relatively unknown, as he could turn out to be a total flop like Federico Macheda.

United have a history of plundering the Lions in the past, stemming all the way back to Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival at the Theatre of Dreams in 2003.

The two clubs clearly have a strong relationship and this may help to smooth proceedings in the future.
