Man United, Liverpool face competition for Sporting Lisbon left-back Nuno Mendes

Juventus and AC Milan have reportedly joined the list of clubs wanting to sign Sporting Lisbon wonderkid Nuno Mendes during this summer’s transfer window.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed an impressive 2020-21 campaign for the Portuguese club, contributing one goal and two assists in 24 appearances in all competitions.

Liverpool and Manchester United have both been credited with an interest in the teenager, who penned a new long-term deal with Sporting in December.

However, according to A Bola, the Premier League duo have been joined in the race by the Italian pair Juventus and AC Milan.

The report goes on to claims that Sporting will only allow the left-back to leave if the £60m release clause gets activated.
