Mendy Arrival: Manchester City Has The Most Expensive Defence In History

Manchester City has the most expensive defence in history after Benjamin Mendy completed his £49.9 move yesterday.

City now has four of the five most costly defenders ever bought.

The France left-back’s arrival from Monaco takes City’s spending to a staggering £217m with Pep Guardiola having spent almost £130m on three full-backs in only 10 days.


Mendy, whose fee could rise to £52m, joins a defence already boasting Kyle Walker, who joined from Spurs this month in a deal that could reach £54m, as well as John Stones, for whom City paid Everton £47.5m last summer, rising to £50m.

City also paid £42m for Eliaquim Mangala in 2014, although they are now trying to offload the France centre-half for a cut-price £18m.

It leaves David Luiz, for whom Paris St-Germain paid Chelsea £50m in 2014, as the only one of the world’s most expensive five defenders not playing for City, whose defence also includes goalkeeper Ederson Moraes, for whom Guardiola paid a British record £34.7m earlier in the summer.
