Benjamin Mendy has completed his £52m transfer from Monaco to Manchester City to become the world's most expensive defender.

 
The 23-year-old France left-back has signed a five-year deal with the club.


Mendy is City's fifth major signing of the summer and takes their spending to more than £200m.
"He is undoubtedly one of the world's best full-backs, our number one target in this position," said director of football Txiki Begiristain.


Mendy played 34 times for Monaco last season and helped them to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years after joining them from Marseille last summer.
