Arsenal, Chelsea & Man United offered pass-master

Super agent Jorge Mendes has offered Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea the chance to sign Joao Moutinho for £30m in January, according to reports from The Express.

The Portuguese playmaker was one of Monaco’s big money buys following their Russian takeover and return to Ligue 1 , but rumours suggest that he’s unhappy after just over a year on the Mediterranean coast, with the exits of James Rodriguez and Radamel Falcao having unsettled him.

And with the Principality outfit not yet through to the last 16 of the Champions League, Moutinho may be sold next month.

His agent, Mendes, is understood to have approached a selection of clubs to assess a potential deal, with Arsenal, Chelsea and United among the names he’s talked to.

Offers of £30m could be accepted for the silky passer, who has long considered to be one of Europe’s top deep-lying playmakers.

United have close links with Mendes following deals for his other clients Angel Di Maria and Falcao, while Arsenal and Chelsea are also keen.
