Job xxxx Football Agent
Desc Often regarded as one of the most powerful men in sport, Jorge Mendes is the mastermind behind the Gestifute football agency, having come into the profession after a spell as a DJ. Mendes has proven to be a natural in the business and has acted as a conduit between South America and Europe, often prising the best talent from Argentina and Brazil to stop off in his homeland of Portugal before going on to become international superstars. Among such faces are James Rodriguez, Angel Di Maria and Diego Costa. Portuguese players have also been a major source of revenue, with Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva among his most successful in this regard. Cristiano Ronaldo, though, is the star client of Mendes, who has played a major role in guiding the five-time Ballon d’Or winner through his career and was the man behind his move to Juventus last summer. Additionally, he currently has an exclusive deal with Wolves, where he acts as a transfer advisor

[Jorge Mendes on Jose Mourinho] Manchester United have only one problem: it’s completely impossible to find someone like Sir Alex Ferguson because he’s a God, he’s a genius, and to find a genius is very difficult. There’s only one in England: Jose Mourinho. If United had Sir Alex Ferguson now they would be 12 or 15 points better off. Jose will be the Sir Alex Ferguson of Chelsea Football Club

[James Rodriguez’s agent Jorge Mendes does not know what the future holds for the Real Madrid playmaker] You’ll have to ask the president [Florentino Perez] who is here next to me. I just want the best for the player and the best for the club

[Jorge Mendes declares Cristiano Ronaldo the best player in history after scoring his 700th career goal] He is the strongest ever, for him the best is yet to come and will arrive with the Juve jersey. The numbers do not lie and illuminate the overwhelming way in which Cristiano Ronaldo shatters the records, which elevates him to the category of the best player in the history of football and with a big difference compared to the second. He’s in that position for all that he has achieved in the service of the different clubs that he represented, either in England or in Spain or now in Italy, but also with the Portuguese national team. And the fact is that, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal has already played in three finals, winning two

[Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes is rarely shy when it comes to extolling the virtues of his elite clients. That reasons that stars like Cristiano Ronaldo continue to place their trust in the wily businessman to take care of their affairs] The fact is that, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Portugal have already played in three finals, winning two of them. Cristiano has reached the remarkable milestone of 700 goals, but I have no doubt that he’ll surpass Pele as the best scorer in football history, and he’ll do it with Juventus. After all, 68 goals aren’t a lot for this extraordinary Cristiano Ronaldo, are they? It’s also because I’m convinced that his best is yet to come

[How Manchester City missed out on bargain Bernardo Silva as a teenager. He could have been signed four years earlier from Benfica had director of football Txiki Begiristain taken the advice of super-agent Jorge Mendes] You need to realise that Bernardo’s going to become the best in the world

[Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has insisted that the Juventus forward should still be recognized as the best player in history, despite his Ballon d’Or defeat] Cristiano Ronaldo is the best player in history, and you know it!

[Jorge Mendes has suggested Cristiano Ronaldo could end his career in Italy with current club Juventus] At Juventus he is happy, there is a great coach. Yes, he could end his career at Juventus - he has signed a contract

[Sarri has been reluctant at times to field all three of Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, often fielding one of the latter two alongside Ronaldo with Federico Bernardeschi behind them] The trident with Dybala and Higuain? Sarri [will decide on that]

[The agent feels his client should have claimed the award in one, if not both, of the last two years] He deserved to win [the Ballon d’Or] at least once in the last two years. It was an injustice, Cristiano only thinks of working hard to triumph next season

[Jorge Mendes says Cristiano Ronaldo would have won the Ballon d’Or if he played for Real Madrid] Cristiano deserved to win the Ballon d’Or at least once in the last two years. If he had played at Real Madrid, he would have won it, but next year I think he can win it again. For me it is an injustice [that Cristiano hasn’t won the Ballon d’Or]. He won the Nations League and he is a champion. But he knows what he should do and then we will see what happens in 2020

Cristiano for me is the best player in the history of world football. Portugal before Cristiano had won nothing. With Cristiano they have won the European Championship and Nations League, [while] in 2004 they were a finalist in the European Championship too. He transformed world football. We are talking about Portugal, a small country that has changed a lot thanks to Cristiano

[Jorge Mendes says there are no guarantees that Bruno Fernandes will join Manchester United from Sporting CP this month] I don’t know. If he doesn’t leave now, he will leave for sure in the summer because Sporting have already spoken with other clubs. Something will happen but I am not sure if now or at the end of the season
