According to OK Diario, Chelsea is considering hiring Ferland Mendy from Real Madrid as a left-back.
The Spanish outlet claims that because Mendy is anticipated to be signed as “an express request from Thomas Tuchel” and Marcos Alonso is anticipated to leave Stamford Bridge, the Blues want to improve their options at wingback.
This summer, the fullback is apparently available. Even though he started every game for Carlo Ancelotti’s squad last year, the player is unhappy with his current deal.
The 27-year-old is requesting a pay raise, but Real is refusing to give it to him. Since Antonio Rudiger has been signed, the La Liga champions feel well-protected in case Mendy decides to leave. David Alaba can also play fullback.
However, it is claimed that Real would sell the Frenchman to Chelsea if Chelsea made a proposal of between €50 (£42.5m) and €60 (£51m) after taking everything into account.
