Mendes’ first contract as a football agent came in 1996, when he arranged Nuno’s transfer from Vitória de Guimares to Deportivo de La Corua. He’d met the goalkeeper in a Guimares bar. Following that transaction, Mendes gradually drew in more Portuguese players, including Jorge Andrade. Hugo Viana’s first major international transfer was from Sporting CP to Newcastle United in the Premier League in 2002 for around €12 million.
