After playing since 2019 with Corinthians, the then coach of Internacional de Porto Alegre and current coach of Cruz Azul, Diego Aguirre, took central defender Bruno Méndez to Inter, for which he already knows him and knows of his potential, which could contribute to Cruz Azul in case the negotiations come to fruition.
Méndez has been called up by Uruguay in the Under 18, Under 20, Under 22 and senior team categories, and was even captain of Celeste at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup in 2019 and at the Pan American Games that year.
In November 2018, he made his debut with the senior team in the friendly matches against Brazil and France, still under the command of Óscar Washington Tabárez, now the former technical director of the Uruguayan team.
