Manchester United are again in contact with Sporting CP wing-back Nuno Mendes.
The Sun says United have made contact with the Portuguese champions about a potential £52million deal for the 18-year-old full-back.
Manchester City had been linked with a move for Mendes but it's understood there is no interest from them.
Mendes has made a huge impact in his first full season at the club, making 30 appearances so far to help them end a 19-year wait to win the title.
United have sounded out if a deal might be possible through his agent Miguel Pinho — who also represents Bruno Fernandes.
The left-back, who can also play as a left midfielder, joined Sporting's youth squad in 2012 from Despertar.
And ever since his senior call-up last year, Mendes has amassed a total of 44 appearances for the club.
