He is regarded as the “super-agent”. Agent Jorge Mendes represents more than eighty athletes and accounts for over a billion in transfer money. Since 2015 he has been married to Sandra Mendes.
The couple have five children. Both Jorge and Sandra are from Porto. Despite the fact that her husband is almost always on the road, she has nothing but praise for him: “I can only say positive things about my husband. He is the best in the world for me, but also a great father to our children. I am a wife who always wants to be at his side. Traveling with him from Porto to Madrid, via London or any other part of the world too. ”
Sandra Mendes is a regular attendant at discussions of Jorge Mendes with powerful club owners. With her enormous breasts she made an impression on the top clubs, where men rule and super-agent Jorge Mendes conducts his business.
His main clients are José Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo. But also James Rodríguez, Ángel di María, Radamel Falcao, Sergio Agüero and Diego Costa are on his roster. According to many it makes Jorge Mendes the most successful agent of the moment. More successful than Mino Raiola and Pini Zahavi.
Not bad for a resident of Porto who in the past used to work as a video store owner, a packer of Cornetto ice creams and as a deejay. His father was a janitor. Jorge Mendes, however, has cleverly managed to work his way up the ladder and is therefore now seen constantly on the phone with three different mobiles, dressed in a nice tailor-made suit and with a perfect toothpaste-smile on his face. His first transfer was that of goalkeeper Nuno to Deportivo La Coruna. Hundreds would follow.
Jorge Mendes and Sandra Mendes are smart enough to smell the money. Does a club have a new wealthy owner? Mendes will jump on a plane and if it’s possible will take Cristiano Ronaldo along to get acquainted with the new owner at an informal lunch. After the friendship is struck, Gestalt Mendes will easily install his friends, coaches, technical directors and players at the club to receive a nice commission.
