According to the (Sky Sports), We are getting closer and closer to the summer transfer window, and the competition for new signings is ramping up. Of all the teams with players most sought after, Monaco might just top the list considering their fantastic Champions League display as well as their race for the Ligue 1 title.
Of those Monaco players, Bakayoko and Mbappe are perhaps the most sought after. However their is another player on their team that Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City are all currently chasing. Benjamin Mendy. The left back has been superb for the French side, and given the difficulty of the position, has all the giants of the Premier League looking to snatch him up.
The 22 year old went to Monaco from Marseille last season for €13 million, but is now estimated to be worth at least double that after his spectacular season. Liverpool will be woe to miss this opportunity as well, since City, United and Chelsea can all probably outspend the Reds when it comes to purchasing Mendy. Liverpool have been in desperate search for a strong left back, but will likely look else where.
Jose Mourinho wants an upgrade to replace Luke Shaw should the ex-Southampton player fail to meet the sparkling standards put before him by the Red Devils, while Guardiola and Conte are eager to keep any more young stars from going United’s way. Monaco will certainly try to keep their star, but the offers may just be too good to refuse.
