The club statement reads: “Real Madrid CF and Olympique Lyonnais have agreed to the transfer of player Ferland Mendy. The player is linked to the club during the next six seasons, until June 30, 2025.
Mendy, who joined Lyon from Le Havre for just €5m back in 2017, became one of the most coveted full backs in world football thanks to his progress with Les Gones, attracting attention from both Barcelona and Juventus as well as Real Madrid.
