Nuno Mendes

PSG wanted to renegotiate with Sporting the obligation to buy the left-back, but the Whites’ interest and the possibility of torpedoing his signing induced PSG to pay the 40.

The situation

Nuno Mendes has become the first signing of the 2022/23 season for Paris Saint-Germain. The Parisian club has exercised the purchase option it had on the Portuguese side, for 40 million euros, but the operation has not been easy, PSG wanted to negotiate with Sporting Lisbon to lower that amount, but could not do so because Real Madrid appeared to try to torpedo the transfer. The young Portuguese has been one of the revelations of the championship and of the French team, so much so that Real Madrid was interested in him, although it leaves in doubt whether the interest was real or a simple desire to disrupt PSG for the ‘case Mbappe’. Real Madrid and Manchester City already had Nuno Mendes on their list of suitors when the young man was a Sporting de Portugal player. Finally, it was PSG who closed the deal with the Lisbon club. 

The details

It was an assignment with an obligation to buy. Nuno Mendes had exploded under the command of Rúben Amorim at Sporting and had positioned himself as one of the left-backs, in this case playing as a lane for the Blanquiverde club, The young Portuguese has had a good first year in Paris, even though he was not playing exactly the same role. He has acted as a winger in a line of four defenders, something that has forced him to take more care of incorporating him into the attack and his attention in defense. But his evolution is beyond doubt. PSG tried to renegotiate the purchase option and Madrid broke in, which did not give the French club an option. Either he paid the 40 million or he ran the risk of losing one of his best additions and a footballer that Mbappe holds in esteem.
