Chelsea Announce Edouard Mendy Signing

Chelsea football club have officially announced that they have completed the signing of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes for £22m on a five-year deal.

The club has had issues in the goalkeeping department with Kepa Arrizabalaga making lots of high profile mistakes.

28-year-old Mendy becomes Chelsea’s seventh first-team signing of the summer following the arrivals of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Kai Havertz.

Mendy will compete with Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero to be the club’s No 1 spot.

He follows in the footsteps of Petr Cech – now Chelsea’s technical and performance adviser – who made the same move from Rennes to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2004.

Mendy kept nine clean sheets in 24 Ligue 1 appearances last season with Rennes, helping them to finish third and qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their history.
