Agent Mendes offered Laporta three big names in Barcelona transfer summit

Super agent Jorge Mendes has offered three big names to Barcelona in a transfer summit with president Joan Laporta.

Sport says Mendes was in Barcelona this week to meet with Laporta for strategy talks.

On the table, two names were placed - Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva and AC Milan striker Rafael Leao. Also raised later by Mendes was Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves, who is becoming more and more interesting for Barca.

Mendes has assured Laporta that all three players are willing to move to the Nou Camp this summer and are likely to require "€70-75m offers" to convince their clubs to sell.

During the summit, other clients of Mendes were discussed, including Nico González, Clement Lenglet and Francisco Trincao of Barca, plus Adama Traoré (Wolves), Angel Di María (PSG) and Carlos Soler (Valencia).
