Report: Man City adding Mendy to continue backline restoration
Fresh off of completing a record deal to help bolster the club’s back line this summer, Manchester City is back at it with the Premier League season looming.
The Citizens are reportedly on the brink of signing Monaco left back Benjamin Mendy to yet another world-record fee -- which will total over $67 million.
A Monaco representative announced that a fee had been agreed, but Man City is yet to confirm the move. L’Equipe is also reporting that the Citizens are hot on the 23-year-old’s trail in adding to their pricy back four.
Manager Pep Guardiola and Man City have not been shy readjusting their defensive unit over the past year, adding expensive first-team choices John Stones and Kyle Walker.
