Benjamin Mendy, a product of Paris Saint-Germain and currently a free agent, has become a star player for AC Milan. Benjamin Mendy started his career at Racing Club de France before making a move to Italian football. Benjamin Mendy first played for the fourth tier of French football before moving onto other European clubs. After leaving AC Milan, Benjamin Mendy signed for Italian club Bologna. Since then, Benjamin Mendy has become one of the most promising young talents in Italian football.
Benjamin Mendy’s contract at Bologna was ended by the club citing financial issues. Benjamin Mendy moved to Troyes on loan from AC Milan. Benjamin Mendy made 15 appearances for the Trojans this season. Bologna is ready to offer Benjamin Mendy a new contract by which he can now move to another top flight club. Bologna is presently third in the standings of the Italian league and are only two points ahead of Napoli.
Benjamin Mendy’s contract at Troyes is up in July. It is highly unlikely that Benjamin Mendy will sign a new contract with Bologna as they are only looking to bring him back into the team for the final three seasons.

Drogba has also impressed in MLS as well as with AC Milan. There is also interest from Arsenal in Benjamin Mendy. However, Benjamin Mendy’s decision to join Tractor Boys in the Portuguese league this summer may alter his decision on whether or not to move to MLS.
Benjamin Mendy began his career at Tractor Boys as a right-sided defensive midfielder. He played the full-back role in three seasons with Tractor Boys and did not make any appearances on the right side of the defence. Benjamin Mendy’s best chance of moving to the Premier League came as a right-back in the reserves. He then moved to left-back in the second team of Portuguese first division side Fependency Portugal.
