Manchester City closing in on the signing of Ligue 1 star defender

The Manchester City fans in the Transfer Tavern are getting worried about their full back situation.

Full back has been identified as a major problem in the past season.

And there has been a mass exodus of full backs this summer as Pep Guardiola eyes a shake-up in that department.

Popular right back Pablo Zabaleta has joined West Ham while Bacary Sagna has left on a free.

At left back, Gael Clichy has also left at the end of his contract.

New full backs are being eyed by Pep Guardiola and he is closing in on his first signing in this area, according to reports in the French media.

According to French media outlet SFR, Benjamin Mendy is edging closer to joining Manchester City.

The Monaco left back is one of Pep Guardiola’s top targets this summer and he is confident of beating off widespread competition to sign his man.

After already raiding Monaco for Bernado Silva, Guardiola is lining up a move for his team mate Benjamin Mendy.

The once-capped France international only joined Monaco last summer from Marseille but his top performances helped his side win the Ligue 1 title.

Our landlord believes that the 22-year-old is an exciting prospect and it would be interesting to see how he adapts to Premier League football.
