Manchester United lured a top quality left back in the form of Alex Telles Porto in the summer transfer window.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils can lure yet another left back from the Primeira Liga in the upcoming winter transfer window.
As per Correio da Manha, Nuno Mendes is wanted by more than a few big clubs in Europe and Sporting CP want to hold on to their prized asset.
The 18-year-old will be out of contract in 2025 and his current deal, which was signed last summer to ward off suitors, has got a release clause of £41million.
CM Jornal have mentioned that teams like Man United, Liverpool, Juventus, Inter and AC Milan are looking to sign the youngster and they can lure him by activating the above mentioned clause in January.
The Portuguese outlet claim that the £41million clause might not be enough to stop Manchester United and other clubs from signing Mendes in winter and therefore, the Lions are seeking to agree a fresh deal with the player, who is a key member of the first team squad.
At Old Trafford, the likes of Luke Shaw and Alex Telles are there for the left back position and both the defenders have got ample quality and experience as well.
In my view, Ole does not need to lure a left back and instead, he should focus on signing a top player for the right wing, a position that we failed to reinforce in the summer.
