Cristi Chivu is the term of comparison for Ferland Mendy, his left defender Olympique Lyon, wanted by Real Madrid. Spanish team officials regard the 23-year-old Frenchman as his ideal replacement Marceloand the football player's agent advertises his client.
"Half of the European teams want it. Quality backpacks are becoming less and less. Think of Lucas Hernandez, who gave Bayern Munich 80 million euros. Mendy has different qualities: he can dribble and center well.
It is a French Marcelo when he attacks, and in defense can be compared to Alex Sandro or Chivu in recent years. He is left-handed, but he also has a good leg, which allows him to penetrate. Currently the left defender is rare and expensive"he said Ynan Le Mee, Mendy's agent.
However, the French impresario believes that the President of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas, will try to keep Mendy in the team for the next season, at least.
"Lyon has not brought Mendy to market and President Aulas wants to keep it for a year, but it depends on deals. If there is a good proposal, we will look for a deal with Lyon that will satisfy everyone. The choice will be technical, not just economic, otherwise it would go to China"Said Le Mee.
Ferland Mendy was also wanted by Barcelona
Ferland Mendy was also near the rival Madriers' rival eternal, FC Barcelona. The French international has a contract with Olympique Lyon until 2023.
The side defender has 3 goals and 3 passes for Lyon this season in 42 games in all competitions.
Mendy arrived in Lyon in 2017, from Le Havre, for only 5 million euros.
