“The left-back competition is getting hotter with the entry of Nuno Mendes.”
1NEWS – The strength of Paris Saint-Germain is increasing with the presence of Nuno Mendes. The 19-year-old youth was brought in by Les Parisens on loan from Sporting CP.
The agreement between PSG and the management of Sporting and Mendes went well, even the player who had defended the Portugal senior squad for five matches had agreed to PSG’s terms.
The player who plays in the left-back sector joins for a fee of 7 million euros (Rp 117.8 billion). He will undergo a loan period, although PSG have the right to patent his services if he pays 40 million euros (Rp 673.1 billion) in a five-year contract.

PSG are willing to use Mendes’ energy after seeing his good form with Sporting, where he made 35 appearances in all competitions.
The two clubs are also in talks over a loan deal for Pablo Sarabia, although the Spaniard would prefer a move back to La Liga with Atletico Madrid.
The presence of Mendes makes the competition in the left-back sector even hotter. PSG coach, Mauricio Pochettino, is believed to be difficult to make a choice because there are still quality left-backs such as Juan Barnat, Layvin Kurzawa, to Abdou Diallo although the last name can also play a central defender.
However, Pochettino was enthusiastic about the inclusion of Mendes. The coach with the Argentine passport assesses that the quality of his players will increase with the healthy competition to get a position in the starting XI of Les Parisiens.
