CaughtOffside via sources in Portugal that Manchester City are still trying to convince Nuno Mendes to come to the Premier League as Paris Saint-Germain lead the race to sign the 19-year-old.
We’ve found that PSG are actively discussing the transfer of talent Mendes with Sporting Lisbon, who are demanding €40m for the promising full-back plus Pablo Sarabia on loan.
Sporting’s interest in Sarabia leaves City with a difficult task of beating the Ligue 1 powerhouses in a transfer battle for Mendes.
Cancelo is the starter for the Citizens at left-back, Zinchenko is called on as a versatile rotation option whilst Benjamin Mendy is currently suspended after being charged with four counts of rape.
