However, things have accelerated quickly today and unless of any major surprises we are now just days away from welcoming two elite full-backs to the Etihad Stadium, with City's summer plans well and truly back on course.

Monaco have announced Mendy will miss the trip to Switzerland for preseason training due to a "thigh injury", but that's not the real reason for his dismissal from the squad.

While Liverpool have the money to buy him if they wanted to, it would leave little left to spend on other areas of the squad.

City are understood to be close to securing Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker for a similar fee having been disappointed by Dani Alves' last-ditch decision to choose a move to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer ahead of reuniting with Pep Guardiola at Eastlands.

According to Sky Sports, there's been a breakthrough in the negotiations after the Sky Blues agreed to meet Monaco's asking price.

Mendy on his part has already told the Monaco hierarchy that he wants to join Manchester City and it remains to be seen how long the Ligue 1 winners can keep the Premier League giants at bay.

City are thought to have been offering nearer to £40m but need to make progress on signing a left-sided defender following the departures of Gael Clichy and Pablo Zabaleta.

Mendy will reportedly cost the English side around £40 million (R683 million) and this deal is expected to be done before next.
