Manchester City £44.5million bid for Benjamin Mendy has been rejected by Monaco, according to SkySports.
French giants Monaco have denied Manchester City’s bid for Benjamin Mendy ahead of his summer move.
The Citizens have been eyeing him for the past few months and are now set to seal his deal for a big transfer fee.
They have recently signed full-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur for a fee around £55m, which made the Englishman the most expensive defender in the history of football.
Monaco have demanded more than £50m for Mendy and Man City have been reluctant to splash more money on him, however, now the reports believe that they are likely to meet their demands.
The Frenchman who won the Ligue 1 title in his first season has previously hinted a move to Premier League.
The 23-year-old was exceptional for Monaco, he was also called up for France senior side after his impressive performance for the club. He made 39 appearances for the French side last season.
City are also keeping tabs on Real Madrid full-back Danilo following the departure of Gael Clichy. The Brazilian is a right-back but has played on the left side for Real Madrid.
