Danilo joins Manchester City

Danilo joins Manchester City

Manchester City's newest signing Benjamin Mendy has compared Pep Guardiola to Marcelo Bielsa - a manager who the left-back once claimed "bored" him into becoming a better player.

Mendy only spent one year at Monaco after arriving from Marseille but excelled at the Stade Louis II, providing 11 assists in all competitions from left-back as the club won their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years and reached the Champions League semi-finals.

The 23-year old penned a six-year deal with the Club and is now in Los Angeles with his new teammates as they prepare for the second game of the United States tour against Real Madrid.

The 23-year-old has signed a five-year deal and will wear the No 22 shirt at the Etihad Stadium.

Having snapped up Ederson and Kyle Walker in recent weeks, City have now used their official website to announce the arrival of Real Madrid defender Danilo.

After much speculation, Benjamin Mendy is finally coming to Manchester City.

Mendy has been particularly impressed by the club's ambition to bring in top-level players.

"They belong to the same football family and I think that can only be beneficial for me and the rest of the division as well".

Along with Silva and Mendy joining City, Monaco have also been hit by the departure of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko to Chelsea, while winger Thomas Lemar is reported to be the subject of interest from Arsenal.

Manchester City's bench features Danilo, Sergio Aguero and David Silva, players that would likely walk into most other Premier League sides.

"He is undoubtedly one of the world's best full backs, our number one target in this position".

Mendy will likely prove to be an excellent buy for City, and his addition to their impressive list of summer recruits is yet another statement of intent from the club.

The defender will now be looking to make a good impression on Guardiola as he seeks to hit the ground running at his new club.

According to Le10Sport, which is not the most reliable outlet, City and Monaco have had "intense talks" for a Mbappé transfer, and if Pep is successful in convincing Mbappé to snub Madrid for a move to the Premier League, then a deal could happen.
