Bruno Fernandes pushing Manchester United to sign Sporting Lisbon defender

According to Daily Express, Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is pushing the club into signing Nuno Mendes.

The Sporting Lisbon left-back has been in fine form this season and the Red Devils could use Alex Telles in a swap deal to bring the youngster to Old Trafford this summer.

Fernandes played alongside Mendes at Sporting Lisbon before joining Manchester United in January 2020.

The 18-year-old has flourished this season, scoring one goal and registering one assist from 20 Primeira Liga matches.

The article alleges the Reds could use Alex Telles as a possible bargaining chip in a swap deal for the young Sporting Lisbon left-back.

United hardly need left-back reinforcements, though, with Luke Shaw becoming a key part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this term.
