Ferland Mendy is on the target of Serie A giants’ interest over a possible loan move in the summer transfer window as Juventus look to have a left-back to replace Alex Sandro.
Mendy is one of the finest left-backs in the world now judging by his performance in the Champions League last season.
In the final against Liverpool, he defended very well against Mohamed Salah and limited the Egyptian’s impact.
Mendy penned a six-year deal with Real Madrid following his summer move from Lyon in 2019, and almost immediately usurped Marcelo to become the first-choice left-back for Los Blancos. However, the capital club are expected to part ways with Mendy this summer which would give Serie A giants a chance to prise the France international away from the Santiago Bernabeu.
Real Madrid are supposedly already making contingency plans for Marcelo and Mendy’s possible exits, with former Blancos starlet and current Rayo Vallecano left-back Fran Garcia rumored to be on their radar.
The interest from Juventus stems from the regressing performance levels of Alex Sandro, who has been the Italian club’s first-choice left-back for over half a decade. The Brazilian international’s poor performances have compelled Juventus to enter the market for a left-back, especially with Luca Pellegrini also being uninspiring.
