Liverpool to beat Man City in race for Monaco full-back

Liverpool will fight both Manchester giants for Monaco star Benjamin Mendy, according to stories in France.

Manchester City are trying to follow up the £43 million signing of Bernardo Silva from Monaco with another raid of the Ligue 1 champion’s fantastic side.

However, Liverpool and Manchester United will battle with Pep Guardiola in the race for Mendy’s services.

All three sides are searching for a new full-back after trying to fill the role in the last campaign.

Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp often have used midfielders in the left-back area while Guardiola has gutted City’s defence by letting Gael Clichy, Sagna and Zaballeta go.

The Frenchman has stood out in an excellent Monaco side full of young stars and future superstars.

The Premier League giants can all offer Mendy Champions League football and are extreme to persuade the Frenchman to join their club.

United’s wishes have been boosted by the fact they secured Champions League football by acquiring the Europa League title.

RMC Sport suggest Liverpool have told Monaco they will match City’s offer and will remain to match whatever deal their rivals put forward.

City have submitted an offer of £39 million for Mendy which would be a club-record fee for Liverpool if they pip Guardiola to the defender.

But it seems Jurgen Klopp is ready to resolve Liverpool’s persistent left-back problem once and for all this summer.
