FOOTBALL- French left back Ferland Mendy has become the latest player to join Spanish giant Real Madrid.

The six year contract has been finalized for the sum of €48m plus a further €5m in future bonuses to Lyon.

Real Madrid is sparing no expanse to bolster its team after a poor 2018-19 season. Real Madrid finished third in La Liga last season and ended their Champions league run with a Round 16 defeat at the hands of Ajax.

Eintracht Frankfurt and Chelsea’s Luka Jovic and Eden Hazard respectively have already joined the club. Santos star Rodrygo is also expected to complete his move to the Bernabeu over the summer.
