Ferland Mendy's agent uncovers Juventus were negotiating to sign the Real Madrid left-back and predicts Memphis Depay will pick Juventus over Barcelona.

Yvan Lee Mée

, the specialist of various football players, including Real Madrid's Ferland Mendy, has uncovered the 25-year-old defender might have joined

Juventus

"We spoke to Juventus, but they already had Alex Sandro," he told Tuttosport.

"Truth is, Real Madrid wanted him more than anyone else. Two years ago I said Ferland would become the Mbappé of left-backs and I was proved right.

"Playing along with the champions at Real Madrid can make you improve, and right now, I can't think of a more complete left-back."

Mendy scored the winning goal against Atalanta in the first leg of the

Champions League

round 16 recently. 

"It's something they've tried so many times in training. But usually, it is a midfielder who shoots. Zidane appreciated the fact that it was Ferland who took the responsibility."

Memphis Depay will see his agreement terminate toward the finish of the period, and he's been connected with both the Old Lady and Blaugrana.

"It's not a secret he wants to join Koeman at Barcelona," Lee Mée, who is not the Dutch striker's agent, said.

"However, Barcelona already have several strikers and they can't spend lot of money. Free agents are a specialy of Paratici and Depay seems perfect to play along with Cristiano."
