Mendy said: “I am very proud. This is what I wanted from the very beginning. As soon as the championship was over, I talked to my family and it was all clear in my head: I wanted to join Manchester City.
“I think I am the right person for the group. I am easily adaptable. There are some players with whom I exchanged a few emails, I knew them from some years ago.
“Regarding football, I can bring a lot of creativity in the game, I can offer different solutions, I like to take to play as a full-back and provide assists for the strikers.”
