Benjamin Mendy Joins Man City From Monaco

Manchester City have completed the signing of Benjamin Mendy for N23.7 billion (£52m), the club announced on Monday.
The 23-year-old France international has signed a five-year deal and will wear the number 22 shirt.

He will now join up with his new teammates in the USA where Pep Guardiola and his squad are preparing for their second pre-season tour game against Real Madrid in LA.
"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." 

"He is undoubtedly one of the world's best full-backs, our number one target in this position," said director of football Txiki Begiristain.
Mendy played 34 times for Monaco last season and helped them to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years after joining them from Marseille last summer.

City have already signed England right-back Kyle Walker for N20.57 (£45m), plus a potential N2 billion (£5m) of add-ons, Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva N19.66b (£43m), Brazilian keeper Ederson Moraes N16b (£35m) and defender Danilo from Real Madrid N12b (£26.5m).

They have sold left-back Aleksandar Kolarov, 31, to Roma for N2b (£4.5m).
