Greek giants Olympiacos want to upstage Portuguese champions FC Porto to sign Zaidu Sanusi from Santa Clara while counting on the help of Cristiano Ronaldo’s famous agent, according to various reports.
Record reported that Zaidu, 23, is now very much on the radar of Olympiacos, who have the millions to spend on him after they recently sold Costas Tsimikas to Premier League champions Liverpool.
Porto have long been linked with the speedy Kebbi-born leftback, but his club have since come out to say they are yet to receive a formal bid from the champions of Portugal.
It has now also been revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo agent, Jorge Mendes, has now been brought into the proposed transfer.
Olympiacos enjoy a good relationship with Mendes and hope that will work in their favour to beat Porto to this transfer target, who could also play as a stopper and in midfield.
