Soon after confirming the deal of Luka Jovic from Eintracht Frankfurt, Real Madrid are reported to have completed the signing of Ferland Mendy from Olympic Lyon.
According to L'Equipe, Mendy underwent his Real Madrid medical on Tuesday afternoon, after the Spanish giants sent two doctors from their medical staff to Clairefontaine to carry out the check-up on the Lyon left-back, who is there with the France squad.
His deal will run to 2025 and the 21-year-old will provide backup and competition to Marcelo. The move is set to jeopardize the future of Sergio Reguilon and Theo Hernandez. Provided Mendy passes the medical an announcement could be expected in the course of the week over his signing by Real Madrid. It is reported that Lyon wanted 60 million for the player but Madrid hoped to pay 50 million, and both agreed to meet half-way.
