Manchester City close to deal for Benjamin Mendy

Manchester City close to deal for Benjamin Mendy

Monaco have rejected two offers from Manchester City for Benjamin Mendy, m but the Premier League giants have slapped in a third bid, according to French sports daily L'Equipe.

City's transfer business was going well before Dani Alves made a decision to snub them, meaning they would more than get back on track with a bid for Mbappe, not to mention the Kyle Walker deal that looks set to go through today.

The France worldwide helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title last season, making 39 appearances as Leonardo Jardim's side also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Mendy will reportedly cost the English side around £40 million (R683 million) and this deal is expected to be done before next. 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.

Donor Days to help blood shortage
They say the shortage is equal to the organization not collecting any blood donations for four days or more. You can download the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store, Google Play or text BLOODAPP to 90999.

With Gael Clichy having already left the club, Manchester City are left with just one option at left-back in Alexander Kolarov.

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.

City will pay what Monaco have asked and Mendy will be the second player from the Principality club to join City after Bernardo Silva.
