Jorge Mendes XI: Man United and Chelsea stars together in one ultra impressive team

With three of his players having already moved this summer, and at least another one eyeing a transfer before deadline day at the end of the month, it’s easy to see why Jorge Mendes has earned himself the moniker ‘Super Agent’.

Below, we’ve mapped out an entire XI based around players on his books, and you know what? It’s not a bad looking squad at all.

de gea man united

GK: David de Gea – Manchester United

The Spanish international built up his reputation as a world class goalkeeper last season but has been angling for a move to Real Madrid all summer. The move has verged over into ‘saga’ territory now, but expect a few more twists and turns over the next ten days.

LB: Fabio Coentrao – Real Madrid

Coentrao has been linked with a move to England for a number of years now but it’s never happened. However, he is currently being linked with a switch to AC Milan.

Thiago Silva – Paris Saint Germain

Perhaps the finest defender in the world. He joined PSG in a £29m deal from AC Milan a few years ago, which is a far cry from his underwhelming spell at Porto earlier on in his career.


CB: Ezequiel Garay – Zenit St Petersburg

Linked up with Mendes back in 2013 and soon made a big money move to Zenit St Petersburg amid rumours of a switch to Manchester United. Now the highest paid defender in Russia.

RB: Nicolas Otamendi – Manchester City

Shoehorned in at right-back, the Argentine international has just completed a move to Manchester City.


DM: William Carvalho – Sporting Clube de Portugal

Carvalho has been linked with everyone from Arsenal to Manchester United and Chelsea. Has yet to leave Lisbon, but will do so for a hefty sum when the time comes.

CM: Joao Moutinho – Monaco

A long time client of Mendes, the agent has guided the Portuguese international through all the major decisions of his career so far. He facilitated his move to Monaco, and will undoubtedly play a huge part in getting him out of there, too.

CM: James Rodriguez – Real Madrid

Another player that made the jump from Porto to Monaco before becoming another high profile, big money signing for Real Madrid last summer.

ronaldo real madrid

AML: Cristiano Ronaldo – Real Madrid

It’s only fitting that the world’s greatest player is paired with the world’s greatest agent, and Mendes will surely maintain Ronaldo’s status as one of the world’s best paid sportsmen when the time comes for him to leave Madrid.

di maria psg

AMR: Angel Di Maria – Paris Saint Germain

Di Maria has cost Benfica, Real Madrid, United and PSG over £125million, and with Mendes’ fee of 10 per cent coming in, that’s a cool £12.5million for he and his agency.

costa chelsea

ST: Diego Costa – Chelsea

Costa was just 19 when Mendes took him under his wing, and has since moved him onto world stardom.

Radamel Falcao
Eliaquim Mangala
Carlos Vela
Andre Gomes
Thiago Neves
Bernardo Silva



Jose Mourinho – Chelsea

Ever wondered why so many of those players have been linked with Chelsea?
