Manchester City Fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays a report that claims the club have make Nuno Mendes a ‘top’ target but won’t match Sporting Lisbon’s asking price for the left-back.

The Sporting youth academy product was a breakout star in Primeira Liga last term. He became an ever-present figure for a team that broke Benfica and FC Porto’s dominance in Portuguese football by winning the league title whilst remaining unbeaten in the process.

Mendes’s form saw him rewarded with a place in Portugal’s squad for Euro 2020, and his performances have supposedly caught the eye of Pep Guardiola.

The premier league champions are looking for a new left-back with the club open to selling Benjamin Mendy, who has not lived up to his £52million price-tag since arriving at City three years ago.

According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the 19-year-old is regarded as a top talent by City, who are looking to sign him.

However, but the City board have ‘no intention’ of paying the full €50m price tag that the Portuguese side have priced the youngster at.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Chief and City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.

The breakout of Joao Cancelo last season was a blessing for the Citizens. But after selling Angelino to RB Leipzig permanently, they do not have a reliable alternative other than the injury-prone Mendy and Oleksandr Zinchenko. 

It is no secret that the young Ukrainian favours playing in a central midfield role, so Manchester City’s desire to sign someone like Mendes certainly makes sense this summer.
