Manchester City have continued their defender spending spree with the arrival of Benjamin Mendy from Monaco.

The left-back has signed a five-year deal after joining for a reported fee of around £50million, becoming Pep Guardiola’s third full-back arrival in 10 days after Kyle Walker from Tottenham and Danilo from Real Madrid.

Chelsea were also interested in Mendy, and were willing to pay a similar fee after missing out on Danilo, but will now focus on alternative options such as Southampton pair Ryan Bertrand and Cedric Soares.

“I am absolutely delighted to be joining Manchester City,” Mendy told City’s official website. “They are one of Europe’s leading Clubs and in Pep Guardiola they have a manager committed to playing attacking football.

“I am sure that over the next few years we will be successful.” Chelsea retain an interest in Alex Sandro, but face a tougher task to lure him away from Juventus following Leonardo Bonucci’s move to AC Milan
