Benjamin Mendy will fly to Los Angeles tomorrow to meet his new Manchester City teammates and undergo a medical ahead of officially completing his €57.5million (£51.6million) move from AS Monaco.
French transfer guru Mohamed Bouhafsi of RMC Sport has followed up on the many reports that a fee has been agreed between the two club by revealing that Mendy will make the flight we’ve all been waiting for tomorrow.

Mendy will be joined by Danilo, the Real Madrid full-back who is penciled in to sign his Manchester City contract later today and complete his £26.5million transfer.
The signings of Mendy and Danilo will take City’s spending on full-backs to around £130million for the summer, and if Pep’s words are anything to go by, they may not even be the last.
The last remaining full-back from last season, Aleksandar Kolarov, is in Boston to complete his move to Roma, meaning the full-back positions will have been completely restocked once these deals are finalised.
