Chelsea have a new goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy, for 25 million

Chelsea have announced the signing of Edouard Mendy to reinforce the goal of the 'blues' and further threaten the ownership of Kepa Arrizabalaga. The French goalkeeper, from Rennes, arrives in exchange for 25 million euros And it does so two years after Chelsea invested more than 70 in the Spanish goalkeeper, who has not performed as expected.

At 28, Mendy has reached an agreement for the next five seasons, unequivocal sign of the bet that the club makes to get their services. Frank LampardHowever, he defended Kepa a few days ago: “I'm happy with him. He's here, he's our goalkeeper and I'm happy.” However, after his mistake in the Brighton field on the first day, the error came against Liverpool, giving Mané a goal inside the area.

The fact that they have looked for a goalkeeper to compete for ownership speaks for itself of the doubts that the former Athletic player has generated at Stamford Bridge. After Havertz, Werner, Ziyech, Chilwell, Sarr and Thiago Silva, Chelsea add Mendy to their list of transfers and raise this season's spending to around 220 million euros.
