Manchester City confident £50m deal for Monaco full-back Benjamin Mendy will be done soon

MANCHESTER CITY are ready to stump up another £50million for Benjamin Mendy after finalising their deal for Kyle Walker.

The Citizens had a bid for the Tottenham right-back accepted yesterday with the England international set to become the most expensive defender ever.

And, according to the Mirror, after finally completing a move for Walker, 27, City are ready to spend the same amount on Monaco full-back Mendy.

The French international has become one of the most highly sought-after defenders in the world after helping Monaco to the Ligue 1 title.

City have been monitoring the former Marseille star for a number of months and are now willing to stump up the cash to get their man.

Mendy, 22, has been left OUT of the Monaco pre-season squad that travelled to Switzerland – handing City a boost in their pursuit.

Pep Guardiola is keen to wrap up a deal for the £50m full-back as quickly as possible, so he can travel with the rest of the Man City squad to the US.

The Prem club head to Houston on Monday and face a pre-season match against rivals Manchester United next week.

Mendy has been a Guardiola priority for months after impressing in Monaco’s brilliant Ligue 1 winning campaign and the club’s run to the Champions League semi-final.

Guardiola got rid of three full-backs this summer, allowing Bacary Sagna, Gael Clichy and Pablo Zabaleta to all leave for free.

SunSport revealed last month that Mendy will sign a four-year deal worth £100,000-a-week to move to the Etihad.
