Ferland Mendy believes France team-maters Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba could easily join him at Real Madrid though he insists they have not discussed such a prospect.

The left-back was unveiled at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday after his €50 million move from Lyon.

“What can I say, why not? They [Mbappe and Pogba] are both excellent, top quality players but really we have not spoken about Real Madrid,” Mendy said.

“The only person I have spoken to about Real Madrid in the French national team is Raphael Varane.”

Mendy joins Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao and Rodrygo in moving to Madrid as part of a €300-million summer spending spree ahead of the new season.

“Varane told me that it was the biggest club in the world,” Mendy added. “He said he’ll help me to integrate into the group and in the dressing room.
“I am very happy to play for the best team in the world and to be able to wear this shirt. I hope to win many titles here.”
