Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has personally shortlisted
Junior Firpo (Real Betis), Alex Grimaldo (S.L. Benfica) and even David Alaba (Bayern Munich) have been mentioned in recent weeks as potential targets for Real Madrid this summer, with current defender Sergio Reguilón expected to leave on loan.
But Mendy has been pushed to the front of the cue by Zidane ahead of the summer transfer window, with the 46-year-old desperate to sign his compatriot.
It's claimed that Lyon will demand between €35m and €40m for Mendy's signature this summer as they're already struggling to keep hold of midfielders
Ferland Mendy, Militao, N’Dombele, Hazard, Jovic, and Pogba could be world class summer. Club needs to stop playing around and get moving. 1/6 done ✅— B. (@BlancoStats) April 30, 2019
