  • Man City break record for biggest single-window spend

Mendy flew out to join the rest of the City squad in LA on Sunday and, after completing a medical, signed a five-year contract yesterday with the club denying there were any add-ons involved in their deal with Monaco.

Mendy, 23, played a pinnacle role in Monaco's Ligue 1 title-winning side last term, with his impressive form leading to a first global call-up in March 2017 and has since earned four caps for Les Bleus.

The France player will link up with his new teammates in the United States where Pep Guardiola's side is preparing for its second preseason International Champions Cup game against Real Madrid in Los Angeles.

"When I came in 2010, honestly, I didn't expect to play so long", he said.

On that occasion Guardiola named 32-year-old Pablo Zabaleta and Aleksandar Kolarov, 31, with Bacary Sagna, 34, and Gael Clichy, 31, on the bench - a quartet with a combined age of 128.

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

Vincent Kompany can't wait to see what new signings Bernardo Silva and Benjamin Mendy bring to Manchester City after their thrilling season with Monaco. "For such a young player, he has a wealth of top-level experience", he said.

"Sergeant Pep" is the nickname given to City manager Pep Guardiola by former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher, and few would doubt the Catalan's ability to marshal Mendy's talents to the next level. He will be looking to establish a stronger claim to winning the Premier League trophy next season and for that, he was in dire need of quality defenders.

Mendy joins the likes of Kyle Walker and Danilo as the fullbacks that were brought in this summer. I don't really wait for it to happen, I get out there and pass on the message I think is the most appropriate when I'm on the pitch.

"He is undoubtedly one of the world's best full backs, our number one target in this position". "For me, it's a very sad day", the veteran full-back admitted. "In every part of the Club we have improved not 100 per cent but 200 per cent." .
