There are a few Real Madrid players who are linked with a move away from the club. Just yesterday, The Real Champs revealed that Ferland Mendy was of interest to Premier League trio Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United. However, an update has been made, which could involve two of those clubs climbing higher in the pursuit.

Liverpool and Arsenal contact Real Madrid outcast about a transfer

According to a report by, Liverpool and Arsenal have both contacted Ferland Mendy about a potential transfer. While no formal discussions have been made and the clubs are yet to discuss, it is interesting that the move onto discourse has occurred rather quickly.

On that note, the outlet which specialises in Liverpool transfers has indicated that it would be a shock to see Liverpool make this deal, since Ferland Mendy is older than their typical calibre of transfer. Still, with Jurgen Klopp leaving Anfield Stadium at the end of the season, the board may be adopting a different transfer strategy.

It is not unlike Arsenal in recent years to sign established players playing at the top of their game. In recent years, they have signed Gabriel Jesus, Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber - All of those players played at a high level before joining the club and they would all play regular football with their respective clubs before joining Arsenal.

Ferland Mendy is a well-respected figure at Real Madrid and Carlo Ancelotti clearly values his role in the squad. After all, the French full-back has made 19 La Liga starts this season, so he is no fringe player. He has all the capabilities in the world to become a world-class full-back if he signs for a club that suits his philosophy.

But why should Real Madrid advocate for his sale? After all, he's an important squad player, right?

Well, the truth is, Mendy is far too good to be on the bench for even half of the season. Unfortunately for Mendy, given Real Madrid's transfer plans (to sign Alphonso Davies this summer), it looks unlikely that Mendy will even start half of Real Madrid's games next season. As great as Mendy undeniably is, there is no competing with Davies, who is arguably the best left-back in the world.

Personally, I think Mendy would be suited to Arsenal, who could do with a defensively-sound full-back.
