Mendes: 'Ronaldo still best ever'

Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has insisted that the Juventus forward is still “the best player in history”, despite his Ballon d’Or defeat.

Ronaldo finished third on the podium, behind Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona arch-rival Lionel Messi, who ended up taking home the prize for a record sixth time.

The 34-year-old did not attend the ceremony in Paris to crown Messi, and Mendes made it clear he disagreed with France Football over who won the Ballon d’Or.

Official: Lazio pair join Wolves

Lazio have officially sold Pedro Neto and Bruno Jordao to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The two Portuguese talents have signed five-year contracts with the Premier League club.

Their arrival had been shrouded in some mystery, as Lazio paid €18.5m plus bonuses to purchase the pair from Sporting Braga in the summer of 2017, despite them being practically unknown.

They are represented by agent Jorge Mendes, who is also working very closely with Wolves on a number of deals.

After Patrick Cutrone, now Wolves are reportedly in talks for Milan players Andre Silva and Franck Kessie as well.

Milan still want to sell the striker and Sport Mediaset claim Mendes is now trying to send both Silva and midfielder Kessie to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Monaco: 'Not in Andre Silva talks'

Monaco director Oleg Petrov insists they are “no longer negotiating” with Milan for Andre Silva, but denied it was a medical issue.

The transfer had been practically sealed when the Portugal international flew over for a medical, but suddenly the entire deal collapsed.

It had been reported this was due to an on-going tendon issue and that Monaco had requested a discount in order to complete the transfer.

Agent: 'Hope for best James solution'

Agent Jorge Mendes said he hopes “we find the best solution for the club and player,” as Napoli target James Rodriguez remains at Real Madrid.

The Colombia international is back training with Zinedine Zidane’s team after Copa America duty and his two-season loan at Bayern Munich.

He is a known target for Napoli and Atletico Madrid, but Real Madrid have been unable to agree terms.

“I am not the one who decides these things. You’d have to ask (Real Madrid President) Florentino Perez,” Jorge Mendes told Radio Marca.

Napoli deny James-Mendes meeting

Napoli have staunchly denied that Jorge Mendes is on his way to Dimaro to discuss James Rodriguez’s move from Real Madrid.

Radio Kiss Kiss claimed late on Thursday morning that Mendes was flying to Napoli’s preseason training camp for talks with club officials over James’ proposed transfer.

However, that was quickly followed by the Partenopei tweeting: “Even though Napoli’s official radio station says Mendes is coming to Dimaro, needless to say Mendes isn’t.

James proposed to Milan?

Agent Jorge Mendes offered James Rodriguez to Milan for €42m after Napoli refused to pay for the Real Madrid man, claim Sportitalia.

According to transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, Mendes is working to consolidate his partnership with the new Milan hierarchy.

James is not on Real Madrid’s radar, even after the Marco Asensio injury, but Napoli are still not prepared to buy him outright, insisting only on a loan with option to buy.

Atletico Madrid are the favourites now, but there could be another solution in the form of Milan.

Napoli sell Vinicius to Benfica

Napoli have agreed to sell Carlos Vinicius Morais to Benfica for €17m, according to the latest reports.

It was a transfer that raised eyebrows for €4m from Portuguese club Real Sport Clube in the summer of 2018, as the striker never actually played for Napoli.

The 24-year-old had loan spells at Rio Ave and Monaco, scoring 14 goals in 20 games for the Portuguese side and two goals in 16 French appearances.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Vinicius is on the move again and has already left the training camp to join Benfica for €17m.

Aurelio De Laurentiis said Napoli “are prepared to make sacrifices for James Rodriguez, but we ask Real Madrid to make them too. He only ever delivered with Carlo Ancelotti.”

The President repeated his stance that €45m for the Colombia international is unreasonable, especially as he wants to sign James on loan with option to buy.
