Mendy is City’s fifth major signing of the summer and takes their spending to more than £200m.“He is undoubtedly one of the world’s best full-backs, our number one target in this position,” said director of football Txiki Begiristain.Mendy played 34 times for Monaco last season and helped them to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years after joining them from Marseille last summer.He is the Premier League club’s fifth major signing of the summer following the recruitment of England right-back Kyle Walker for £45m, plus a potential £5m of add-ons, Portugal midfielder Bernardo Silva (£43m), Brazilian keeper Ederson Moraes (£35m) and defender Danilo from Real Madrid (£26.5m).They have sold left-back Aleksandar Kolarov, 31, to Roma for £4.5m.The arrival of Mendy leaves Manchester City with the most expensive defensive line-up in world football.When Ederson moved to the club from Benfica earlier this summer, his move was a world record for a keeper in sterling, although not in euros.Mendy and Walker have been added to a backline which also includes centre-back John Stones, who was bought for £47.5m from Everton last summer,with the trio making up three of the world’s five most expensive defenders.Central defenders Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Mangala, who spent last season on loan at Valencia, also joined City for fees believed to be in the region of £32m.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Dream trip awaits England’s GolfSixes winners

first_img The countdown is on to the final of England Golf’s GolfSixes competition for club members – where the winners will qualify for a luxury trip to Portugal and a once-in-a-lifetime European Tour experience.The top pair in the national final at Centurion Club, Hertfordshire, on Thursday 2 May will be handed the honour of representing England in the pro-am at the 2019 GolfSixes Cascais in Portugal.They’ll tee up alongside stars of the European Tour and the women’s game on Thursday 6 June on the stunning Oitavos Dunes course, in the beautiful region of Cascais close to Lisbon.Then, they’ll get the full VIP treatment at GolfSixes itself, watching the players compete for a €1m prize fund over two days. The European Tour’s fun and fast six-hole tournament will be played on 7-8 June.The winning pair will also receive return flights to Lisbon, three nights’ accommodation and a GolfSixes gift pack.GolfSixes is being played in continental Europe for the first time since it launched at the Centurion Club two years ago, winning many fans with its bright, modern format. It breaks barriers with innovations like the shot clock, music, pyrotechnics, painted fairways, on-course interviews and fan engagement.Last year England Golf partnered with the European Tour to take GolfSixes to its club members, inspiring people to take up the game or play more often. A national competition was launched with affiliated clubs invited to stage qualifying GolfSixes events.Over 100 clubs have entered the inaugural event and their two qualifying players will head to the national final at the Centurion Club. Clubs have until Friday 12 April 2019 to complete and submit this form with details of their successful players.James Crampton, England Golf Championship Director, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with the European Tour to offer this dream opportunity to our members. We’ve had a fantastic response to our first competition and I’d like to wish good luck to all our finalists.”Mark Casey, Championship Director of GolfSixes Cascais, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside England Golf to launch this initiative once again, which showcases exactly what GolfSixes is all about – getting grassroots golfers involved in this exciting and innovative format.“We want golfers across the country to get into this fun new format. This provides a great opportunity to play alongside some of the best players in the world game, both male and female, and enjoy the excitement of a tournament which has captured the imagination of the sporting public in the last two years.“I would like to thank Centurion Club for hosting the national qualifying event to extend their association with the tournament, as well as Cascais Municipality, who will hosting the professional event in the next three years, for their generous hospitality.”The GolfSixes format has not only proven a huge success on the European Tour – with The 2018 Ryder Cup also featuring the concept as part of its build-up at Le Golf National – but it has also been adopted across the grassroots of golf. The Golf Foundation’s GolfSixes League for juniors has involved 24 leagues across 22 UK regions, involving 112 golf clubs and nearly 1,500 junior golfers.Oitavos Dunes is currently ranked 55th in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Golf Courses in the World, while it is listed as Portugal’s Number One golf course.It has hosted the Open de Portugal on four occasions, first in 2005 when Paul Broadhurst emerged victorious, and then in three years in succession in 2007, 2008 and 2009, won by Pablo Martin Benavides, Grégory Bourdy and Michael Hoey respectively.Captions: The 2018 GolfSixes England men’s team, Matt Wallace and Eddie Pepperell.
