Manchester City are interested in signing Nuno Mendes from Sporting Lisbon in the summer transfer window, according to Correio da Manha, as relayed by Sport Witness. Mendes has started pre-season training with Sporting after time off following the European Championship, but the left-back still expects to leave this summer.
Premier League champions City are keen on signing Mendes in the summer transfer window. However, the Citizens are reluctant to pay the €50 million that Sporting want for the teenager. The Portuguese giants are open to seeing the young left-back, but they would like to keep him on loan for next season.
Mendes has been at Sporting since 2012 and has come through the club’s youth academy. The 19-year-old Portugal international left-back scored one goal and gave one assist in 29 league games last season and also played twice in the Europa League.
