Official: Real Madrid confirm Ferland Mendy transfer

After announcing the signing of Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard, Real Madrid have now announced the signing of Ferland Mendy from Lyon in a deal worth up £47 million.

Ferland Mendy, 24, played 44 matches this season with Lyon, scoring 3 goals and assisting 3 others has showed an outstanding growth in potential which made Didier Deschamps call him to the national team and give him an important role in the squad for the Euro 2020 qualifiers has complemented the French defender saying: "He can play on either side and his development is stunning." and about his links with Los Blancos he said: "Two years ago, he was in the second division and now he will play at Real Madrid."
