The France international has been through a rough patch at Manchester since his £ 52million transfer from AS Monaco in 2017.
The 26-year-old’s stint at the Etihad stadium has been ravaged by injuries, with big doubts hanging over his fitness and longevity at the club.
With two years remaining on his current Manchester City contract, the full-back could be offloaded in a bid to generate funds that would help the club pursue their priority goals ahead of next season.
As reported by the Italian point of sale Corriere dello Sport, translated and relayed by Semper Inter, Benjamin Mendy has been identified as a potential rookie by Inter Milan as they look to build on their Serie A success.
The report further states that it is highly likely that the former Marseille star could prove too costly for Inter this summer, due to financial constraints from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Manchester United’s Alex Telles and Liverpool’s Kostas Tsimikas are also being considered by the Italian side, who recently appointed Simone Inzaghi as Antonio Conte’s replacement.
Benjamin Mendy contributed two goals and two assists in 20 appearances across all competitions for Pep Guardiola’s side during the 2020/21 campaign.
Oleksandr Zinchenko has played the waiting game over the years, but having played for club and country since the start of the year, the 24-year-old is expected to be the Catalan boss’s first choice, if he refrained from entering. the market for a new left-back this summer.
With João Cancelo a natural right-back providing reliable cover on the left side of the defense, City could decide to take advantage of Mendy if the right offer comes along.
