Manchester City Break World Record For Defender Again As They Sign Mendy For £52m

Manchester City have signed French star Benjamin Mendy from AS Monaco in a fee reported to be £52m to make him the most expensive defender in history.

The 23-year old Mendy, who signs a five-year deal at the Etihad Stadium and will wear jersey no.22 in the new season, will now join up with his new teammates in the USA where Pep Guardiola and his squad are preparing for their second pre-season tour game against Real Madrid in LA.

 Mendy said;
“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester City,” 
“They are one of Europe’s leading Clubs and in Pep Guardiola they have a manager committed to playing attacking football. 
“I am sure that over the next few years we will be successful.”
City’s Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain, said:
“Benjamin has all the qualities we are looking for in a full-back. For such a young player, he has a wealth of top-level experience. 
“He is undoubtedly one of the world’s best full-backs, our number one target in this position. We are all delighted to have him here at Manchester City.

“I’m sure he will prove a fantastic addition to the squad.”
