Derby d’Italia Rivals Keep Close Eye on Real Madrid’s Mendy

Real Madrid defender Ferland Mendy has appeared on the transfer market, and two Italian rivals are looking to sign him on a permanent transfer along with a Premier League team. Los Blancos are determined to strengthen at the left-back position, having suffered a fall in defensive quality in recent matches, leaving Mendy on the fringes of a potential transfer.

Derby d’Italia duo Inter and Juventus are trailing the possibility of signing Mendy from the Spanish heavyweights, according to latest reports from Italy (via TuttoJuve). However, there is a major blockade in Mendy’s valuation, which amounts to €60M – a fee both the Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri would not be able to afford at the moment due to their respective precarious financial conditions.

Apart from the Azzurri rivals, there is also lingering interest from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City. The Cityzens are a realistic destination for the Frenchman, given the financial backing of the reigning English champions.

Mendy has 124 appearances for Real Madrid since joining them from Olympique Lyonnais in 2019.
