Official: Real Madrid buy Mendy for €48m

Real Madrid have officially signed Olympique Lyonnais defender Ferland Mendy for €48m plus up to €5m in performance-related bonuses.

The announcement had been in the air and was confirmed with dual statements this evening.

He came up through the youth academy at Le Havre, moving to Lyon for €5m in the summer of 2017.

Mendy’s price-tag and profile sky-rocketed after his fine performances this season, with three goals and three assists in 44 competitive matches.

He has signed a contract to June 2025.
