United City and Chelsea want Mendy

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested in signing Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy this summer, Sky sources understand.  The 22-year-old has been instrumental for the Ligue 1 leaders and Champions League quarter-finalists this season, making 28 appearances in all competitions for the club since a £13m move from Marseille last summer.

It is understood he is now valued at around twice that figure and is of interest to all top-six teams in the Premier League, but sources have told Sky Sports News HQ that Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte are the most keen on the defender as things stand.Guardiola - set to make changes to his City squad this summer - is believed to want another option to Gael Clichy, while Mourinho appears to have given Luke Shaw one final chance to prove himself at Old Trafford, and Conte wants to bolster his ranks ahead of the Blues' return to the Champions League next term.
