Juventus has shown interest in Real Madrid players as the Turin giants aim to poach the Los Blancos defender.
Former Lyon defender Ferland Mendy has attracted the interest of Juventus following his tremendous performance since his switch to Santiago Bernabeu.
Mendy might struggle for game time this season now that Real Madrid signed Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea.
It is believed that manager Carlo Ancelotti will relegate Mendy to the bench and deploy David Alaba to the left side of the defence with Eder Militao and Rudiger as the centre defence pairing mates.
Mendy is expected to make the left defence his own following the exit of Marcelo at the end of the season following his arrival in 2006 but the addition of Rudiger has added another twist to his expectation.
Juventus is out for a new left-back following the poor performance of Alex Sandro, the Brazilian was complimented by Luca Pellegrini in the last season but this could be the last season of the former FC Porto defender in Juventus.
The Bianconeri recognise they need a new left-back and Calciomercatoweb reports that they want Mendy.
It says they are keen to make him one of their summer signings and they will offer to loan him with an option to buy.
Juventus FC Says Mendy is one of the finest left-backs in the world now judging by his performance in the Champions League last season.
In the final against Liverpool, he defended very well against Mohamed Salah and limited the Egyptian’s impact.
Juve needs someone as solid as that to man their left-back spot, and it would be interesting to see if we can strike a deal with Madrid for his signature this summer.
No doubt the exit of Mendy will reduce Real Madrid squad quality considering what Mendy can offer when it comes to shutting down a pacey and fast attackers.
