Lyon’s Ferland Mendy has become Real Madrid’s latest summer signing, joining the Blancos in a deal worth an initial €48 million (£42.7m/$54m).

Having seriously under-performed both at home and in Europe during the 2018-19 season, Madrid president Florentino Perez is sparing no expense to ensure the coming campaign will mark an improvement.

Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard are already confirmed arrivals, from Eintracht Frankfurt and Chelsea respectively, while Santos wonderkid Rodrygo is also expected to complete his move to the Bernabeu over the summer.

Now, after spending heavily on bolstering the Blanco forward line, Madrid have turned their attention on defence, bringing in the highly rated left-back on a six-year contract as the presumed heir to ageing Brazil legend Marcelo.

“Real Madrid and Olympique Lyonnaise have agreed the transfer of the player Ferland Mendy,” Madrid confirmed in a statement published on the club’s official website.

“The player will be linked to the club for the next six seasons, until June 30, 2025.

“Mendy will be presented on Wednesday June 19, at 1pm, in the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.”

According to Lyon, the sale was negotiated for the sum of €48m plus a further €5m in future bonuses. (Goal)
