French international Benjamin Mendy has concluded arrangements to sue former club, Manchester City.
Mendy said he plans to sue the club over a backlog of wages.
To further press charges, Mendy will take City to an employment tribunal in a bid to recoup what the French left-back believes were “unauthorised deductions from wages” after he was charged with rape and sexual assault two years ago.
And after he was cleared of those allegations, the 29-year-old, left City when his contract expired in June, 2023.
It is alleged City stopped paying Mendy in September 2021 after he was initially charged and held in custody.
In January, Mendy was cleared of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault, but the jury were unable to reach verdicts on two charges, leading to a retrial.
He was found not guilty on those two charges by a jury at the retrial in July.
Mendy, who was reportedly paid around £100,000 ($125,000) per week by City, is seeking the return of pay he is owed up until the end of his contract with the treble winners.
