"Mendy will be presented on Wednesday the 19th of June at 1:00pm CEST in the VIP box at the Santiago Bernabéu". He is always a threat going forward and he made 44 appearances for Lyon last season.
Madrid have purchased the French global for a fee of £42.7 million - a not inconsiderable sum to add to the amounts already paid for Hazard (£90m), Jovic (£54m), Militao (£45m) and Rodrygo (£40.5m). All reports suggest they haven't finished spending yet. He also was handed his first call-up to the France squad in November.
Mendy came through the youth system at Paris Saint-Germain but an arthritic hip threatened to cut short his career.
