According to what has been reported by Spanish newspaper AS, Real Madrid are closing in on Lyon defender Ferland Mendy. Mendy, however, has been a target of Juventus as well but the Bianconeri have failed to move in time as Los Blancos look to get all their transfer business wrapped up as soon as possible; the La Liga giants already having all-but confirmed the signing of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard, whilst having completed the deal of Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic a couple of days ago.
Juventus will now have to source an alternative for Mendy; as the Italian club look to instigate a reshuffle in defence.
