Watch: Monaco's Mendy offers classic response to quell City transfer rumours

The silly season is upon us.

All it took was one picture to send social media into a tailspin, as AS Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy supposedly posted a photo from the inside of a plane.

Football supporters immediately connected the dots and concluded he was likely on his way to complete a transfer to Manchester City after reports suggested a move to the Premier League outfit was on the horizon for the 22-year-old.

Mendy caught wind of the rampant speculation and responded with a video showing him cruising down the Champs Elysee in Paris on what looks to be a go-kart.

The video was accompanied by a message in French noting how “Manchester” has changed, as well as a plea for everyone to calm down.

Other than enjoying a ride down the historic avenue, Mendy is presumably in the capital ahead of his duties with the French national team, as the country gets set for a World Cup qualifier against Sweden on June 9.
