His arrival costs the summer spending up to a staggering £ 344 million, with Mendy for £ 49 million.
The spree began in June last year with the purchase of teen Rodrygo from Santos for £ 40 million to complete a deal for £ 43m Porto center-back Eder Militao in March.
Since the end of the season, they have completed the ongoing £ 150 million purchase of Eden Hazard, while £ 62 million Serbian star Luka Jovic was presented at the Bernabeu on Wednesday after his arrival from Frankfurt.
Earlier this week, Didier Deschamps confirmed that Mendy would move to Madrid during this summer period.
