Manchester City have the upper hand in the race to sign Monaco left-back BENJAMIN MENDY, according to the Daily Star.

Mendy, who could cost £30million, is expected to desire more top European football next season, which strengthens City's immediate case.

Griezmann is expected to attract some big-money bids in the summer, but his agent has told French news outlet TF1 that United have shown the most interest so far.
