Manchester United and Manchester City set to battle it out for £30 Million French youngster
Monaco star Benjamin Mendy, is attracting the interest of bitter rivals Manchester United and Manchester City. The left back who is one of the stars of Monaco’s very young title challengers has been very impressive for the Municipal club.
According to press reports, Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City is currently leading the chase for the player. But Manchester United are also in the race after Luke Shaw reportedly asked to leave the club.
Both Manchester teams are in need of solid full back options and Mendy’s age makes him an ideal option, he can become a reliable wing back for a long period of time.
The player is reportedly valued above £30 million and any club who wants to sign him should be prepared to pay no less than that figure.
Mendy has spent only one season at Monaco, but his consistent performances has seen his stock rise very fast and he is said to be open to a move to the Premier League.
Manchester City are also interested in Tottenham’s Danny Rose, but should they fail to meet Spurs valuation of the player, they are likely to go for Mendy.
