PSG keen on Ferland Mendy

Ferland Mendy’s tenure at Real Madrid has been a mixed bag since his €48 million move from Lyon five years ago. Initially, he usurped the legendary Marcelo as the first-choice left-back, showcasing his defensive prowess and attacking flair. However, his journey has been marred by recurring muscle injuries, which affected his performance and consistency.

This season, under Carlo Ancelotti’s guidance, Mendy has experienced a resurgence. Playing a vital role in Real Madrid’s backline, he has clocked 2,655 minutes across 35 appearances. Despite his importance, Mendy’s future at the Bernabeu is in doubt as he enters the final year of his contract this summer. This uncertainty has piqued the interest of Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG’s pursuit of Mendy seems fueled by multiple factors. With Lucas Hernandez sidelined long-term and Nuno Mendes grappling with fitness issues, the Ligue 1 champions are in dire need of a reliable left-back. Moreover, PSG’s desire to land Mendy could be seen as a strategic move to counter Real Madrid’s anticipated acquisition of Kylian Mbappe.

However, prying Mendy away from Real Madrid might be challenging. Ancelotti values the Frenchman highly, and the club is keen on renewing his contract. The coming weeks will reveal whether PSG’s determination and resources can sway Mendy’s decision, or if he will extend his stay in Madrid, continuing to fortify their defence.
