Manchester United have reportedly identified talented young Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy as a potential summer transfer target amid rumours that Luke Shaw could move to Chelsea.
The Red Devils are likely to be up against Juventus in the race to sign the 22-year-old, who has shone for the Ligue 1 leaders this season to turn heads around Europe.
The €8.9m-rated Mendy has been linked with Premier League clubs in the past after long being one of the most highly rated young talents in France, and next summer may finally be the year he heads to England.
United are known to be considering Shaw’s future after the England defender’s failure to win over Jose Mourinho this season, but the club would need a replacement.
Mendy looks like he could be ideal for United’s needs, and Tuttomercatoweb claim the Premier League giants are ready to battle for his signature in the near future.
The France Under-21 international could be joined by fellow countryman Antoine Griezmann as speculation hots up that the Atletico Madrid forward is also set for Old Trafford.
