Club Career

Early Career

Mendes, who is of Angolan heritage and was born in Lisbon’s Sintra neighborhood, began playing football at the age of nine. As a child, he looked up to players like Marcelo and David Alaba, as well as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bruno Botelho, a teacher at his school, would see him and extend an invitation for him to play for the neighborhood team Despertar in the suburbs of Lisbon. He attracted the attention of Benfica, Porto, and Sporting CP after swiftly making a name for himself. At the age of 10, he joined the latter’s youth program.

Sporting CP

Mendes was one of a select number of young players who manager Rben Amorim called up to the first squad after the COVID-19 pandemic breakout in February, which resulted in an early conclusion to the youth football season. This was true even though Mendes had barely played once since November due to an injury. On June 12, 2020, he replaced Marcos Acua in the 72nd minute of his team’s 1-0 Primeira Liga victory at home against Paços de Ferreira to make his professional debut.

Mendes was selected first after the latter left for Sevilla in the off-season of 2020, making him the club’s youngest starter since Cristiano Ronaldo in September 2002. He went on to start six of his team’s last seven league games.

Paris Saint-Germain

Mendes joined Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan with a purchase option on August 31, 2021. On September 11, he made his Ligue 1 debut for the team after substituting in the 85th minute in a 4-0 victory over Clermont. Four days later, he made his UEFA Champions League debut, coming on to replace Abdou Diallo 75 minutes into a 1-1 group-stage draw against Club Brugge.

He immediately made an impact on the field, most notably by making a “brilliant” run to set up a shooting opportunity for Lionel Messi in the 77th minute. Later on in the month, in a 2-1 victory over Lyon, he received his first start.

International Career

Soon after making his club debut, Mendes won his first cap for Portugal at the under-21 level in a 4-0 victory in Cyprus for the 2021 UEFA European Championship qualifications on September 4, 2020. He had represented the under-16, under-17, under-18, and under-19 age groups in the country.

Manager Fernando Santos called up Mendes to the senior squad six months later for matches against Azerbaijan, Luxembourg, and Serbia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification. Later dropped from the under-21 team scheduled to compete in the finals. He made his debut with the latter on March 24, 2021, playing the full 1-0 win over Azerbaijan.
