High Court Gives Ben Mendy More Time to Clear Debt

The court has granted Ben Mendy additional time to sell his mansion in Macclesfield, Cheshire, after reducing the price from £5 million to £3.8 million.

Legal Action Against Former Club

Ben Mendy is bringing legal action against former club Manchester City for ceasing to pay him when he was charged with rape in 2021, despite being acquitted of the charges. This bankruptcy case could potentially impact his legal claim, which is set to go into mediation later in the year. Despite initially agreeing to pay off the debt through his salary at Lorient in France, Mendy has not followed through with the payments, causing concern for the presiding judge.
