Manchester City have continued their summer spending spree after announcing the signing of left-back, Benjamin Mendy, from French champions, AS Monaco.

The 23-year-old signed a five-year contract with City, following his £50million transfer from Monaco to the Etihad.

Mendy flew in to Los Angeles for his medical and contract signing, before he’s expected to join up with his new team mates in their pre-season tour of the US.

“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,” he added.
City’s Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain, said: “Benjamin has all the qualities we are looking for in a full-back. For such a young player, he has a wealth of top-level experience.

“He is undoubtedly one of the world’s best full-backs, our number one target in this position. We are all delighted to have him here at Manchester City.

“I’m sure he will prove a fantastic addition to the squad.”

Mendy, who began his footballing career in Le Havre, was part of the Monaco side that won the French Ligue 1 last season, for the first time in 17 years, and also reached the last four of the UEFA Champions League.

Mendy, who assisted five goals for Monaco last season in the Ligue 1, has four caps for France, after making his international debut in March, this year.
