Ferland Mendy presents a strange case in the Real Madrid squad

Ferland Mendy remains a strange case when it comes to the Real Madrid squad. Despite all the criticism launched at him, he was a key player under Zinedine Zidane and remains a key player under Carlo Ancelotti. 

However, it seems like the club are still evaluating his performance before offering him a new contract. He joined the Spanish giants in 2019, but hasn’t renewed his deal with the team yet. 

Real Madrid’s strange case with Ferland Mendy  

The left-back’s fitness is one of the reasons behind Real Madrid not rushing into a renewal. Ferland Mendy played 35 games out of 56 (62 percent) last season, 38 out of 52 (73 percent) in 2020/21 and 32 out of 51 (63 percent) in 2019/20. 


In three years, the defender has missed 277 days of football. Moreover, the tibial periostitis that kept him out for 106 days has worried Real Madrid about his fitness. This season, though, he has been available for all games, and has played 17 out of 21 games so far. 

Mendy isn’t the starting left-back for France, considering the presence of Theo Hernandez in the line-up. However, that doesn’t mean that he lacks quality. His ability is unquestionable considering his role under two of the best managers in recent history. But, Real Madrid will have to make a decision about his future soon regardless of whether they want to sell him or keep him.
