Manchester City’s target, Benjamin Mendy has today received the following message from his current club, AS Monaco.
Happy birthday – 23 years as his jersey number: a very happy birthday @ benmendy23 !!! #HBMendy
Today’s Independent say City have been negotiating with Monaco for weeks but they are now close to agreeing a fee for Mendy which is likely to be close to the £50m that City paid for Walker. Only the minor details of the deal remain to be agreed, as well as Mendy’s medical.
I wonder if this will be their (AS Monaco) penultimate Mendy message. Perhaps their last one will read something like…
‘We have agreed a deal with Manchester City FC and wish Benjamin all the very best in the future.’
Birthday boy Benjamin spends the day with his mates at Port Hercules, Monaco.
Monaco are currently pre-season training in Switzerland.
