Manchester City are looking to add Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy to their ranks after landing right-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham.

City were also keen on Walker’s former Tottenham teammate Danny Rose, but appear to have given up hope on any chance of landing the England international and have instead paid their attention to Mendy, and the French defender could be signed in time to join City’s pre-season tour to the US

And the Sunday Express reports that Guardiola is now ready to pay £50m for Mendy before City leave for their pre-season trip to America later this week.

And according to The Sun, Mendy is in line for a four-year deal worth £100,000-a-week at the Etihad.
