Mendy of Real Madrid to play for Arsenal next season?

Ferland Mendy

Mundo Deportivo reports that Arsenal is keen on acquiring Ferland Mendy from Real Madrid. Thus, potentially leading to a summer raid by the Premier League giants. Mikel Arteta, after an unsuccessful title challenge this season, recognized the need to rectify squad deficiencies during the upcoming summer transfer window. Acquiring a new left-back is among the top priorities for the upcoming season.

This is where the role of Mendy becomes significant. Despite facing injury setbacks, the Real Madrid player has a high rating for his wide presence and proficiency in delivering crosses into the box.

Is Real Madrid willing to sell Mendy this summer?

Real Madrid, on their end, are willing to approve the sale of Mendy as they aim to restructure their squad. To compensate for the potential departure of the Frenchman, the club has been in a link with various players, including Alphonso Davies.

Regarding Mendy, Real Madrid may not receive a significant amount from his sale. According to the report, Arsenal intends to initiate negotiations starting at a mere €20 million. This amount seems inadequate considering that Los Blancos acquired Mendy for nearly €50 million.

Meanwhile, Mendy’s value has been diminished due to injuries. He also faced scrutiny for his inconsistency and limited potential. Consequently, Real Madrid may encounter difficulties in securing a substantial fee for the sale of the fullback during this summer transfer window.

Apart from Mendy, Real Madrid is also eager to offload other peripheral players from the team. Thus, aiming to generate sufficient revenue to fund their pursuit of top targets in the upcoming summer transfer window.
