Unfortunately it is looking like the later - he has made 19 appearances since he signed and in that time the team has played 87 matches which means he has appeared only 22% of the time. He was reported to have cost £52m so he has cost us £2.74m per appearance so far, not a good deal I think you could say.
for his age 24 mendy he's not played that many games and only 25 games for monaco and 81 games for marseille ??? so looking at that 6 months period for monaco and the 2 games vs city was the shining light and maybe city did jump on the bang wagon and with other knowing we needed a left back monaco took us to the cleaners, and somebody at man city should have questioned the injuries and pointed out its a gamble
lets hope he can really work hard and get fully match fit and play a good run of games and a couple of back to back seasons and repay the faith we have in him and the games vs monaco he was unbelievable for them and flying
