If reports from Portuguese outlet, Bola is anything to go by, then Bruno Fernandes’ agent Miguel Pinho will be helping Man United to seal another major deal in the summer transfer window.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on left full-back ahead of the summer transfer window as banking on Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams for next season will be a big gamble for him.

The Red Devils boss have, therefore, identified Sporting Lisbon star Nuno Mendes as the man that should do the job for him in the coming season.

Nuno Mendes is highly rated in the Portuguese league, having impressed in the appearances he has had and that has convinced manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to want to commit some funds on him ahead of the coming season.

It is now unknown if the Red Devils will be able to meet with the £41 million asking price for Nuno Mendes. They will be hoping to sit on the negotiation table to help beat the price down.

Apparently, Man United have enjoyed great luck and relationship with Sporting Lisbon having had major deals with the club in the past with Bruno Fernandes as the latest recruit form the Portuguese outfit.

It would be recalled that Man United also got Cristiano Ronaldo from the same club in 2003.
