Pedro Filipe Teodósio Mendes (born 1 October 1990) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for French club Stade Rennais F.C. as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Sporting[edit]

Born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland to Portuguese parents, Mendes reached Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth system in 2005, aged nearly 15. In his first two senior seasons he played with Real Sport Clube (third division) and Servette FC (Switzerland, second level), in both cases on loan, helping the latter club to promotion.

In the 2011 summer, still owned by Sporting, Mendes joined Real Madrid, being assigned to the B-team.[1] On 7 December 2011 he made his debut with the main squad, coming on as a substitute for Álvaro Arbeloa midway through the second half of a 3–0 away win against AFC Ajax for the season's UEFA Champions League;[2] during his spell with the Merengues, several of his Castilla teammates expressed their dissatisfaction over what they saw as a preferential treatment by first-team manager José Mourinho, the player's compatriot.[3]

Parma[edit]

Returning to Sporting for the 2012–13 campaign, Mendes was made captain of the B-side who competed in division two, also appearing sporadically for the main squad. On 28 May 2013, he signed a five-year contract with Parma F.C. in Serie A.[4]

On 21 January 2014 Mendes moved to fellow league club U.S. Sassuolo Calcio, in a co-ownership deal with Parma.[5]

Rennes[edit]

Mendes joined Stade Rennais F.C. of France on 6 July 2015, after agreeing to a four-year contract.[6]
