The French international defender is accused of seven rapes against four women and another count of sexual assault.

It was released earlier this month from HMP Strangeways.

Mendy had spent 134 days in prison after violating his bail conditions following his arrest on suspicion of multiple sex offenses.

He has been ordered to spend the next six months under house arrest at his luxury £4.8million mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, while awaiting trial.

He is driven by a driver from his six-bedroom property to report to Macclesfield Police Station.

One onlooker said: ‘This extinct people carrier pulled up outside the police station right outside the door and this guy just jumped off.

“He had his balaclava and a mask on and came in quickly.

“He was only in there for about a minute, then came out, jumped in the van and they sped off.”

Mendy was ordered to stay home, surrender his passport and observe “strict” conditions in his final court appearance by Judge Patrick Thompson.

He won’t go on trial until at least June, meaning he will miss the rest of the Premier League season.

Judge Thompson warned Mendy that if he ignored any part of his bail, he would be sent back to jail.

Mendy’s co-defendant, Louis Saha Matturie, 40, of Eccles, Gtr Manchester, was charged with six counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

Mendy, was a member of the 2018 World Cup-winning France squad.

He has played for Manchester City since 2017 when he joined Monaco in a £52m deal.

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