Mendy: De Bruyne asked me straight - 'When are you joining Man City?'

Benjamin Mendy has revealed a chat with Kevin de Bruyne convinced him about joining Manchester City.

Mendy helped Monaco overcome City in the Champions League last season.

And he recalled to the Telegraph: “After the game at the Etihad I was in anti-doping control with Kevin De Bruyne and had the opportunity then to ask him lots of questions.

“I knew at that point it was going to be my destination. And yes, Kevin asked me straight – 'When are you coming to join us?' And I said, 'As soon as they come and ask for me!'"
