Real Madrid announce signing of £47million left-back Ferland Mendy from Lyon


REAL MADRID have announced the signing of £47million left-back Ferland Mendy from Lyon.

The 24-year-old France star joins on a six-year deal which expires in 2025.

Mendy’s presentation will take place on Wednesday, June 19 at the Santiago Bernabeu, an official club statement confirmed.

Ligue 1 side Lyon will receive £42.7m up front with the rest to come in add-ons.

Doubts had been raised over Mendy’s move when reports in Spain claimed Real Madrid requested a second medical on his dodgy hip.

A crew from the club’s medical department were said to be flying to France to do an “exhaustive” check on the defender – who could feature in this mouthwatering Real XI next season.
