Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo's agent Jorge Mendes spotted meeting Barcelona chiefs for talks in restaurant | The Sun

CRISTIANO RONALDO'S agent Jorge Mendes has been spotted meeting Barcelona chiefs at a restaurant in the city.

Mendes is the long-time representative of the Manchester United superstar, 37, as well as City midfielder Bernardo Silva.

Barcelona club president Joan Laporta and sporting director Mateu Alemany are in charge of negotiating transfers at the Nou Camp.

Gerard Romero shared footage of the pair separately entering a restaurant.

Ron's hot shot agent Mendes is also spotted heading into the eatery.

The men are said to have chatted about a possible return of Nico Gonzalez – who is on loan at LaLiga rivals Valencia.

Reports surfaced recently in Spain saying that the Catalan club were planning to relaunch a bid for Silva in January.

The LaLiga giants failed in an attempt to sign the Man City ace, 28, in the summer transfer window.

And talks may have already reignited in the restaurant meeting on Thursday.

Despite their financial woes, La Blaugrana managed to spend almost £150million on new recruits – bringing in Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Frank Kessie, Andrea Christensen, Jules Kounde, Marcos Alonso and Hector Bellerin.
