Mendy, 22, has been a great asset for Monaco this season at left-back, leading them to a Ligue 1 title, fending off the threat of PSG.
The left-back position has been under the spotlight this season, and if United were to miss out on Mendy, many will question why Luke Shaw cannot perform in that role.
