Manchester City Sign Benjamin Mendy from Monaco on Five Year Deal

City's Director of Football Txiki Begiristain said Mendy has "all the qualities" they are looking for in a full-back.

Phil Foden, who played his very first "big boy" match for Manchester City against Manchester United in the International Champions Cup, caught the fancy of his coach, Pep Guardiola, right away. It all added up to the first trophyless season of Guardiola's managerial career. [But] we have one less than last season, but we will see how we manage that. There has been strong interest from other clubs, but it has always been my ambition to play for Pep Guardiola.

Danilo moved to Madrid from Porto for around £27m in 2015, going on to win one La Liga title, two Champions Leagues, a UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup. Foden should seriously be considered as the answer. Guardiola does not have a great record in the transfer market. "Today is the day I have to say goodbye". Aleksandar Kolarov was sold to Roma on Saturday, following Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna in leaving.

He also becomes their third new full-back, after the signings of Kyle Walker from Tottenham and Real Madrid's Danilo were also confirmed. Ultimately unsuccessful enquiries have been made to Spurs about Danny Rose. The player arrived at Santiago Bernabeu with a lot of hype surrounding him, having been hailed by many as the 'next Dani Alves'.

5 Mendy has 471,000 follows on Instagram and 242,000 followers on Twitter.

That could depend on keeping Vincent Kompany fit.

Real are due to face City in Los Angeles next week.

"Kompany's role will be as a calming influence and to help the newcomers establish themselves".

Managed nine goals in his debut season in England, with his pace and trickery coming to the fore as he grew in confidence across the 2016-17 campaign. None of Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane or David Silva netted more than seven in the league last season. Well, he did not at Barcelona at least.
