The French international has been in terrific form for Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco, as he helped them to their first league title in more than two decades, and also took them to the semi-finals of the Champions League, where they eventually lost to Italian giants Juventus.
The 22-year-old is easily one of the most exciting left-backs in Europe at the moment, and his performances for the French club have not gone unnoticed.
Mendy is reportedly attracted to the chance of working under Pep Guardiola and learning from one of the best coaches in world football, but it is now understood that he is also open to a move elsewhere.
Manchester United have also kept tabs on the 22-year-old, but it is understood that he’s more sceptical of United’s chances of winning major trophies. Meanwhile, Chelsea and Liverpool also remain keen for his signature.
All the four teams need first choice left-backs next season, and Mendy will surely be in full demand when the transfer market is open. But at the moment, he is out on national duty, and is happy to sit back, and will not be rushed into making any decisions about his future.
At his age, he has plenty of time to improve as a player, and another season at the Stade Louis II will also do him no harm.
Where do you think Mendy will play next season?
