Man United keen on signing player with £40.3million clause – Face competition

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Manchester United secured the signing of a top quality left back in the summer transfer window in the form of Brazilian international Alex Telles.

If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are linked with yet another left back.

Transfer: £200,000-a-week playmaker offered to Man United – Ole could move in winter

According to A Bola, Man United are keen on signing Nuno Mendes, who has a release clause of £40.3million in his contract with Sporting CP.

The media outlet have mentioned that the likes of Liverpool and Juventus are also interested in luring the 18-year-old defender and the Primeira Liga side want to offer the player a new lucrative deal to hold on to him.

The Portuguese source have claimed that the Lions will hold talks with Mendes’ agent, Miguel Pinho, regarding new contract and issues such as increasing the player’s salary and release clause will be discussed.

It must be remembered that in the winter window of 2020, Man United signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting CP and the Seleccao star is also represented by Miguel Pinho.

At Old Trafford, Solskjaer’s first choice left back is Luke Shaw but the England international is currently injured and in all fairness, he has been highly injury prone since joining us in 2014.

Second choice Alex Telles has only made 4 appearances (4 wins) for the Red Devils thus far but he has done well. The Samba star has the quality and experience to be our main left back.

In my view, Shaw’s time is up, he should be sold and a replacement must be signed by Solskjaer. In your opinion, should Man United move in to sign Nuno Mendes from Sporting CP?

  1. REGARDING THE NUNO MENDES STORY. This is poor journalism, I have seldom come across respectable media sources that utilize vocabulary such as “In my view” and continue to create an agenda against Luke Shaw, you have a responsibility, if you respect your craft to provide facts that allow for dialog and a wide array of opinions, sputtung out your opinion on matters just allows for other media outlets to further and further stretch headlines each on the cusp of controversial, until it grows and festers into a whirlpool of unfounded negativity and scrutiny all for the sake of engagement. You were not objective and impartial, it is unethical. Either one or both the writer needs training, or the mediation process needs fixing. Understand the power you have over peoples lives and uphold the responsibly you pursued as your passion. It’s disgraceful that you fall into the same loophole as the mess we call the British media. And I might add as well, that your outlet does this a lot, and the ramifications of the industries agenda-whoring are ruining football and creating toxic fanbases. Funny how mainstream media praises Haaland for being childish and selfish in interviews but criticises Marcus Rashford for making property investments for his Property Investment company… With the money he earned training for most of his life, forgoing his childhood. And all this off the back of the amazing work he did to fight to give the less fortunate a fighting chance and establishing food security to the minds of vulnerable children. How sad is that? You don’t talk about these things because they won’t get you clicks. The things you say have a leapfrog affect and compound and infiltrate into society. If you stood back and looked at the bigger picture you’ll understand that outside of your bubble, you’ll understand that there are more individuals that would decide to back the outlet that promotes healthy journalism and exposes click-baiting. I for one will never click another story from your outlet. Purely because you left behind standards by lighting the kindling of an Agenda against Luke Shaw, who if you understand football you’ll know has been great when he plays. YES, injury prone, but that’s why United signed Telles, it’s pretty obvious really. Please change this culture, footballers are human beings.
