Ferland Mendy might have to move out of Real Madrid this summer

What prevented

Real Madrid’s Ferland Mendy has an uncertain future heading into the summer transfer window. El Debate’s Tomas Gonzalez-Martin reported that Los Blancos are worrying about his recurring injuries. Hence, they won’t be renewing his contract.

In the summer of 2019, Mendy joined Real Madrid from Olympique Lyon for approximately €50 million. Initially playing backup to Marcelo in his debut season, the Frenchman gradually established himself as the top left-back at the Santiago Bernabeu.

During his time in the Spanish capital, Mendy suffered eight muscle injuries, including the most recent one last week. He had just returned after being out for two months and played only 28 minutes against Barcelona before being sidelined again by another muscle injury. This will keep him out for approximately six weeks.

Will Real Madrid not renew the contract of Mendy?

This season, Mendy has played only 25 times, with just seven appearances in 2023. As the season nears its end, Carlo Ancelotti, who was always relying on Mendy, will now depend on Nacho Fernandez and David Alaba.

Additionally, Real Madrid has Eduardo Camavinga as a left-back option. Since, the youngster demonstrated his versatility and adaptability. They also have a summer deal in place to acquire Fran Garcia from Rayo Vallecano.

Understandably, Los Blancos are hesitant to offer Mendy a new contract in light of the situation. Last season, the Frenchman requested a new contract with better pay and a longer term. But the club did not agree, and their position is likely to become more stringent due to his recent injuries.

According to the report, Real Madrid is considering selling Mendy in the summer and may be open to offers over €40 million. They have also identified replacements such as Valencia’s Jose Gaya and Bayern Munich’s Alphonso Davies. Therefore, if any tempting offers arise for Mendy, Real Madrid may listen and choose to move on from the injury-prone defender.
