Good news from Stamford bridge as Mendy fully back in training



Good news from Stamford bridge as Mendy fully back in training

After Kepa Arrizabalaga replaced him as the starting goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy is “nowhere near” signing a new contract with Chelsea.

After losing his starting position to Kepa Arrizabalaga, Edouard Mendy of Chelsea is “nowhere near” signing a new contract with the organization.

The Senegalese hasn’t played a single game for the team in 2023 and has just recently started working out with the first team again following a nearly three-month absence.

Due to Mendy’s injury, Kepa has taken over as the team’s starting goalkeeper, and the Spaniard has excelled in Mendy’s absence.

Kepa, who is happiest in possession than Mendy, has garnered Graham Potter’s preference.

Mendy will only have two years left on his contract at the end of the current campaign, which has raised questions about his future at Stamford Bridge.

Mendy has discussed a contract extension with the team, but according to the Times, he is “nowhere close” to signing one.

That is partially due to Mendy’s uncertainty regarding his future in west London, but it’s also because the Blues don’t believe a new contract is a top priority right now.

N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, and Mason Mount, for example, are all thought to be more urgent cases.

In addition to Robert Sanchez of Brighton and Illan Meslier of Leeds, David Raya of Brentford is a player who Chelsea is interested in.
