Real Madrid are expected to make a decision on the future of Ferland Mendy as club ready to sell him.
Ferland Mendy, the left-back, is fine right now, but Real Madrid currently appear to have put themselves in a precarious situation.
Despite the fact that Mendy has been an indisputable presence at left-back since joining Madrid from Lyon in 2019, MARCA reported that the Madrid management is still assessing his performances.
He is still being compared to Marcelo, though, which is not advantageous for anyone. Mendy’s current contract with the team runs through 2025, so there is no need to decide right away.
The 27-year-exclusion old’s from the extensive renovation that took place in the summer of 2021, when players like Luka Modric, Lucas Vazquez, Nacho, Dani Carvajal, Thibaut Courtois, Karim Benzema, and Federico Valverde renewed their contracts, is somewhat troubling.
Eder Militao, Vinicius Jr., and Rodrygo all followed suit this past summer, but it appears that Real Madrid is still unsure of what to do with Mendy. They are currently unsure of whether to sell him or continue his contract.
Again, the player is healthy under normal conditions because he participated in 35 of the team’s 56 games last season. He participated in 38 of the 52 games during the 2020–21 season and 32 of the 51 games during his rookie campaign.
Mendy has spent his three and a half seasons with the team dealing with eight injuries that have sidelined him for 277 days. He has, however, overcome his physical limitations this season and has participated in 17 of the 21 games that he was eligible for across all competitions.
According to the report, the 27-year-old is a “untouchable” for Carlo Ancelotti despite being viewed by many as a weak link in the starting lineup. Consequently, Mendy’s future at the Santiago Bernabeu is still up in the air despite his position in the manager’s plans.
Although everything appears to be fine from above, the situation is actually quite serious, mainly because Mendy’s future will become even more uncertain if Madrid signs a new left-back like Fran Garcia next summer, which has a good chance of happening.
