Often hailed as the Super-Agent, Jorge Mendes has never been shy to voice his opinion, and in his latest statement Jorge Mendes talks about Jose Mourinho’s prolonged Chelsea stint and David De Gea staying put at Old Trafford.
Jorge Mendes was speaking with BBC and he said that, Manchester United have still not been able to replace the iconic figure of Sir Alex Ferguson and Mendes believes his fellow countryman Jose Mourinho has the perfect chance to be Chelsea’s Sir Alex Ferguson.
Mendes believes, Mourinho will have a longer stay this time with Chelsea in comparison to his last stint with Chelsea which saw the self-proclaimed Special One win back to back league titles with Chelsea in 2005 and 2006.
Mendes said, “Jose will stay for sure,” Mendes told the BBC. “He will be the Sir Alex Ferguson of Chelsea Football Club. He loves the supporters, he loves the city and I think he will stay there for more than 10 years.”
Jorge Mendes was also in a giving mood to the media as he clearly stated David De Gea will extend his current contract at Old Trafford despite the growing interest from Real Madrid.
De Gea has one year left on his current United contract and when asked about De Gea’s chances of leaving United, Mendes said, ‘He has one year left on his contract and I think that he will stay in Manchester, ”The player will decide, but he’s happy there, at the moment.’
Mendes’ comments would come as the much needed sign of relief for United fans and manager Van Gaal who admitted last week that In football anything is possible and said that he would like to keep him for long.
Jorge Mendes is regarded as the Super-Agent and perhaps the most powerful agent ever with likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Angel Di Maria, James Rodriguez, David De Gea, Radamel Falcao as his clients. Mendes gave a slight hint about Ronaldo’s valuation in current scenario.
Mendes told the BBC: ‘He’s the most expensive player in the world because he’s the best footballer, the best sportsman ever in the world.
‘It’s impossible to say his worth. Cristiano Ronaldo? One billion. His buyout clause is one billion, so it is one billion.
