Manchester City have signed Benjamin Mendy from Monaco. The French defender has signed a five-year deal and will join the Citizens in the United States, where they are preparing to take on Real Madrid in Los Angeles. The 23-year-old has been handed the number 22 shirt.
“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester City,” Mendy said.
“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.”
Mendy joins former Monaco teammate, Bernado Silva at the Etihad Stadium as the team look to challenge for the Premier League next season. The team, on Sunday, also announced the signing of Danilo from Real Madrid.
