Ferland Mendy was officially unveiled as a Real Madrid player at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday after completing a transfer from Olympique Lyon.

Real signed the 24-year-old full-back, who has made three appearances for France, last Wednesday for a fee that could rise to £49 million.

Mendy is the latest summer signing for head coach Zinedine Zidane, with Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic and Eder Militao having already moved to the Bernabeu.

The newcomers have also been joined by 18-year-old Brazilian striker Rodrygo, who was unveiled by Real on Tuesday.

Real Madrid welcomed new signing Ferland Mendy after he completed his medical and sealed his move from Lyon.

The 24-year-old was presented to fans at the Bernabeu on Wednesday after signing a six-year contract.

The defender joins Eden Hazard, Luka Jovic, Eder Militao and Rodrygo in moving to Real this summer.

Real chairman Florentino Perez told the club’s official website: “Today we welcome someone who has been chosen as the best left-back in the French league the last two seasons.

“Ferland Mendy, you have chosen Real Madrid and from today it becomes your biggest challenge. We know that big clubs in Europe wanted you for their future projects.

“From this moment, Real Madrid is part of your life. This stadium is your home and we will do everything possible so that you and your family can be happy with the support of these great Real Madrid fans.”

Mendy, who has also played for Le Havre, said: “It’s an honour to be at this club, the biggest club in the world.

“Thank you to the president for his confidence and many thanks to the club. Hala Madrid!”

Gareth Bale's agent claims Real Madrid star will not be involved in a loan deal

Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has confirmed that the Welsh star will not be loaned out from Real Madrid this transfer window.

With Eden Hazard and Luka Jovic joining Los Blancos, their wage-bill has seen a steep increase and the likelihood of out-of-favour Bale staying at Madrid next season is reducing by the day.

While a permanent move to another club is on the table, a loan deal is out of the question, according to his agent.

Manchester United were said to be interested in a loan deal but Barnett has put an end to such talks.

“A loan move is not going to happen,” he told Sky Sports. “I don’t think he wants to go out on loan, he’s got a lovely life and home in Spain.

“I think it would take something exceptional for him to leave and loans are not on the menu.

“There’s more chance of me winning at Ascot.”
