Chelsea adds €40m to Edouard Mendy in order to land a new Goalkeeper in the Summer; Details.
Chelsea are interested in signing Andre Onana and they are willing to add €40m to Edouard Mendy in order to land the Inter Milan current Goalkeeper.
He has managed to impress during the UCL with his wonderful saves and interceptions and now Chelsea are more than serious to land him in the EPL side by the Summer.
Here is what was said;
The Italian journalist added that the San Siro side are expecting a bid for their goalkeeper and said:
“After Onana’s convincing performances, according to English sources, Chelsea strongly targeting the Nerazzurri goalkeeper, and to convince the management of the beloved player, they would have made a crazy offer: Mendy plus €40m in compensation.”
Thomas Frank has confirmed contracts have been rejected and told the media:
“I think if he turns it down twice then unfortunately that’s a signal. We made two really good offers but that’s fine, it’s a free world. We can’t force anyone. That said, David has been amazing for us, coming from Blackburn three-and-a-half years ago.”
“In the first season, for me, he was the best ‘keeper in the Championship and then was involved in the play-off final. He made a mistake there but we told him, ‘you will come back stronger’ and the year after, we did it. He has taken that form into the Premier League and I think he’s one of the best ‘keepers in this league right now. He’s a top character.”
The Brentford manager wants £40 million for the goalkeeper and continued:
“I hope he will stay forever but it looks like it could be difficult with the contract situation. He must be at least £40m plus. If he had three years it would be £70m. How much was Kepa? He is at least as good as him.”
Chelsea are confident about Kepa Arrizabalaga again, while contract talks with Mendy have stalled.
