The Portuguese tactician is keen to add a much-needed competition in the full-back areas, and according to latest rumours, Manchester United could snap up the talented duo for £33 million.
Antonio Valencia and Daley Blind have been Mourinho’s first-choice full-backs this season, but he wants more improvements in that area.
Mourinho has been sending scouts on a regular basis to monitor both the French talents’ progress this season, with the pair impressing in the Champions League victory over Manchester City.
Mendy, 22, has already secured his place as a key player for the Monaco squad, which led to him making his international debut for France last weekend.
The defender, who left Marseille in June 2016 and signed a five-year-deal with Monaco, is now believed to be open to a switch to the Premier League giants. And after making 30 appearances for Leonardo Jardim’s side this season across all competitions, it looks like he could be on the move again.
