Benjamin Mendy Is Working On Convincing International Teammate To Join City

Benjamin Mendy may be sidelined with a serious ACL injury but he's keeping himself very busy.

If hopping down the pitch to celebrate Raheem Sterling's last minute winner against Southampton wasn't enough, he's now working on convincing one of his international teammates to join him at City - according to the man himself.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has emerged as a target for City and yesterday one fan asked 'Agent Mendy' to do his thing and get the former Lyon man to the Etihad.

The left-back, always incredible value on social media, produced a typical response and says he's working on it.



Umtiti signed for the Catalan giants in summer 2016 for just €25 million - a price that looked a bargain at the time considering his showing at that summer's Euros on home soil for the Frenchman.

That price has quickly been shown to be absolute steal and his form this season, before he suffered an injury at the beginning of December, was crucial to Barca's incredible form this season.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe City, who are actively looking for a new central defender, have met with representatives of Umtiti in a bid to persuade him to make a move, something he is thinking about.

With 'Agent Mendy' on the case, Umtiti's all-important decision might be made a lot easier. It's emerged that he has a rather measly €60 million release clause - which would be a real coup if City can thrash out a deal.
