Manchester City announce the signing of £52 million Monaco Star

1500971719_968d2

Mendy joined Monaco on a five-year deal last Summer, with his arrival signaling an improvement for Monaco, who went on to win the French league.

Speaking about his move, the Frenchman told the club's official website: "I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester City".

"Pep has been very important because I love his playing style and he's convinced me in the talks we've had", said the 26-year old.

Pep Guardiola has been keen to bolster his full-back areas after Pablo Zabaleta, Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna were released when their contracts expired at the end of last season.

Nasri was a £24million signing from Arsenal back in 2011 and still has two years remaining on his City deal.

Manchester City have officially announced the signing of Benjamin Mendy from AS Monaco.

Dylan Redwine's father arrested in connection with boy's death
During another search, on August 5, 2013, a K9 was introduced into the suspect's home to find more clues into the boy's death. At the time, Mark Redwine said he believed his son was abducted while walking to his friend's house.

The Serbian has spent nearly seven years in Eastlands since signing fromLazio, he shared his desire earlier in the summer to return to the Italian capital and it was announced that the 31-year-old would be doing just that but bitter rivals AS Roma.

Mendy quickly managed to establish himself as one of the best full-backs in world football with his powerful and direct style of play.

Nothing reflects the evolution of football's modern full back more than Manchester City's decision to spend around 120 million pounds ($156.35 million) on buying three in 10 days - with a fourth possibly on the way. "I think I am the right person for the group", he said.

"I'm sure he will prove a fantastic addition to the squad". In fact, despite claims that Jose Mourinho is more of a "chequebook manager", one tweet comparing the pair's spending appears to show that since the City manager began his managerial career, he's spent more in the transfer market than the Manchester United boss.

Mendy was a big part in their run to the Champions League semi-finals (in which they knocked out his new side along the way), along with fellow departees Tiemoue Bakayoko and Bernardo Silva, who has also joined Man City.
