According to reports, police may call Manchester City teammates Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez as potential witnesses in Benjamin Mendy's rape and sexual assault trial.
Mendy is scheduled to go on trial in January after being held in detention for around eight weeks on four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
The 27-year-old is being held on remand at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool, and his third bail application was just denied.
Mendy allegedly raped a female just hours after being seen at Chinawhite in Manchester, according to the allegations.
According to The Sun, Grealish and Mahrez were among those with Mendy on the night, and investigators could call his former teammates as potential witnesses.
There is no evidence that Grealish or Mahrez were involved in the claimed assault, according to The Sun, who also stated that the pair left Mendy in the evening.
Mendy has yet to enter a plea to the allegations of rape and sexual assault, which include four counts of rape and one case of sexual assault.
The alleged assaults on three different women, one of whom is under the age of 18, are said to have occurred at his home address in Cheshire.
On August 26, Mendy was charged with three counts of rape in connection with an alleged event in October 2020, as well as the sexual assault of a lady in early January this year. In August, he was also accused of raping a lady.
Manchester City already suspended the left-back.
