Ferland Mendy, a left-back for Real Madrid, may not return for the upcoming campaign
The 27-year-old defender may leave in the summer despite being under contract until 2025 since he hasn’t impressed the coaching staff. The Frenchman is thus on the market, and Premier League team Arsenal is reportedly considering his options. According to certain sources, the Gunners requested a price from Madrid at first. However, if a story from SPORT is to be believed, Madrid will sell him for €20 million.
It’s interesting to note that Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly also considering buying him. Real Madrid’s season is all but gone with their exit from the UEFA Champions League. This indicates that the management is eagerly anticipating the upcoming campaign and how the team may develop.
Since it is currently known that Eduardo Camavinga won’t play left back exclusively, the Los Blancos will still need to find a left-back even after signing Fran Garcia if Mendy leaves. Even David Alaba, who is an alternative, wants to play through centre.
As a result, Alphonso Davies of Bayern Munich is starting to draw interest. Although it is thought that buying Davies is becoming more likely, the player is not up for sale this summer. Mendy’s future at Real Madrid is absolutely questionable in every manner. The 27-year-old Frenchman has suffered from injuries as well as being inconsistent in his play and failing to repay his manager’s faith.
Real Madrid would entertain a bid if it was sufficiently lucrative, and €20 million seems like a reasonable price in light of his performances. Given that they paid €48 million for him, this will undoubtedly be seen as a major loss.
