Manchester City footballer, Benjamin Mendy, has been charged with two more rapes – on top of the four counts, he is already facing.

The £52million France international has been accused of attacking four women – all over 16 – between October 2020 and August 2021.

He now faces a total of six counts of rape and one of sexual assault. He is yet to enter pleas to the charges.

A second man, Louis Saha Matturie, 40, was also handed two additional counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

Both Mendy – who is on remand at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool – and Matturie will appear at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on November 17.

The men are scheduled to go on trial on January 24, 2022.

Mendy was arrested after a 17-year-old girl alleged she had been sexually abused at his £5million Cheshire mansion this August.

He was also accused of raping a woman last October, as well as a sexual assault in January.

Mendy was initially charged with four counts of rape and one sexual assault.

In October, Mendy was denied bail by a judge at a 50-minute hearing at Chester Crown Court. It was the third bail application Mendy had made.

Man City suspended the Premier League left-back in August, pending an investigation.

In a statement, the club said: “Manchester City can confirm that following his being charged by police today, Benjamin Mendy has been suspended pending an investigation.

“The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.”

He is now missing from the club’s official online shop, with fans unable to buy shirts with his name and number on the back.

It is not even possible to search for “Mendy” in the search bar, nor can users browse Mendy products under the “shop by player” option.

He does, however, remain on the squad list with a full bio detailing his career.

Man City spent a reported £49.2million signing Mendy from French side Monaco in 2017 – with the player reportedly earning about £100,000 a week since then.

Since joining the Blues, he has won the ­Premier League three times, two League Cups and the Community Shield, despite making just 50 appearances for the club.

He last played for the club on August 15 during their 1-0 defeat to Tottenham at the start of the season.

In September last year City boss Pep Guardiola revealed Mendy would be out of the game for at least a month due to an injury.
