Manchester City close to deal for Benjamin Mendy

Manchester City close to deal for Benjamin Mendy”

Monaco confirmed Mendy is still recovering from an injury to his right thigh suffered while on global duty with France, although negotiations between City and the Ligue 1 champion, which is claimed to be holding out for close to $A83.5 million for the 22-year-old, are reported to be ongoing.

Manchester City are also said to be close to sealing a deal for Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker, with a fee of up to £50 million having been agreed.

Following Monaco's scintillating campaign which saw them crowned Ligue 1 champions, the club have seen their players cherry-picked by club's across Europe and it is understood that they are not willing to sell the left-back unless a fee in then region of £50m is put on the table. Monaco have announced Mendy will miss the trip to Switzerland for preseason training due to a "thigh injury", but that's not the real reason for his dismissal from the squad.

Reports from weeks ago that a deal had already been struck were premature, although City have been quietly confident all along that they would end up getting the 22-year-old, who has become a regular for his country this season.

It is really astonishing to see Manchester City spending nearly hundred million to revamp their full-back options and it speaks volumes about their intent that they will be pushing for the title this time around.

The summer has started to drag since the early captures of Bernardo Silva and Ederson Moraes, with disappointing news earlier this week that Dani Alves went back on a verbal agreement to join Pep Guardiola at City, instead opting for PSG.
