Another landmark for Mendes was his biggest international transfer to date in 2002, when he presided over 19-year-old Hugo Viana's move from Sporting Clube de Portugal to Newcastle United, a deal sealed for an eye-popping £8.5 million transfer fee. Mendes acted for another teenager, one Cristiano Ronaldo, in his move from Sporting to Manchester United a year later, as well as for the switch of a similarly feted winger, Ricardo Quaresma, to Barcelona (also from Sporting).In an investigative piece for The Guardian last year, David Conn wrote that Mendes acknowledged being involved with an astonishing 68 percent of transfers involving os tres grandes (the big three of Porto, Sporting and Benfica) from 2001 to 2010.
