Though lagging behind L’Equipe, who have had some excellent, very detailed coverage of happenings in the Benjamin Mendy saga recently, the English press are now receiving word that Manchester City have agreed a fee in the region of £52million for Mendy.
Last night, L’Equipe said a fee had been agreed, and today that is backed up by the BBC, Sky Sports, The Guardian, Telegraph and others,
Mendy is expected to become the most expensive defender ever and Kyle Walker will no longer even be the priciest full-back at City!
We await official word from either side, but it is now almost certain that Benjamin Mendy will be a Blue!
Manchester City have agreed a deal for Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy.
