Manchester United are reportedly still tracking Sporting Lisbon ace Nuno Mendes – despite signing Alex Telles this summer.

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will face competition for the 18-year-old left-back if they decide to swoop in the January transfer window. Liverpool, Real Madrid, Juventus and Inter Milan are all believed to be tracking the Portugal under-21 star, who is believed to have a £40million release clause.

United were reportedly offered Mendes when they signed Bruno Fernandes back in January, with the two players sharing the same agent. The Red Devils eventually signed Telles from Porto in a £13m deal on transfer deadline day back in October.

But Solskjaer is still interested in Mendes, according to O Jogo, cited by Sport Witness. The Portuguese outlet claims Madrid are the latest club to join the race for the left-back, who has played in all but one league match for table-toppers Sporting this season.

As United have Telles, Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams at the club, Mendes would be signed with an eye on the future.
