Chelsea look set to finally get their man as star says his goodbyes ahead of potential move to Stamford Bridge

Posted by

The situation with Chelsea and Edouard Mendy has dragged on much longer than many fans may have hoped, so it looks like Kepa will get another chance between the sticks this weekend.

That is an issue because it’s Liverpool that he’ll play against, and he was at fault from Brighton’s goal earlier in the week.

There’s a real chance that a poor showing this weekend will force Chelsea to pay a bit extra just to get the deal done with Rennes, but it’s clear that the player already has his heart set on the move after he said goodbye to his teammates:

That’s the kind of thing that you only do when you’re confident that a move is going to go ahead, and all signs still point to this happening.

There’s no indication that Chelsea are actively looking at an alternative, and the reality is that playing Kepa for a full season would completely undermine their transfer business this summer.

There’s no way that Chelsea can’t afford to meet Rennes’ demands, it just sounds like a case of arguing over the final details and trying to save a few million here and there.

The performance against Liverpool might determine how quickly Chelsea try to get this wrapped up, but it still seems inevitable that the deal will be done.


More Stories Edouard Mendy


  1. i don’t need Edouard Mendy to arrival Chelsea this season, while we have two great goalkeepers kepa & willy caballero, in advisible just reject it to save few millions, willy and kepa is enough for us

      1. Kepe is a disappointment. His confidence is completely gone. Every shot fire at him ends up in the net. Any one who says Chelsea doesn’t need to replace Kepe, is not a true fan of Chelsea fc.

      2. And a big joker at best, kepa is leaking to many goals which demoralise any efforts for goals by the players, we can’t be sure of protecting a lead with kepa on the sticks

    1. I wonder if truely you are a Chelsea fan
      So after all the clueless goals he concede last season and the one against Brighton u still want us to continue with him
      Hmmmm this is pure wickedness

  2. Nazifi i dont realy agree…if you’v seen da game wit b&h you’l see dat his morale is low,willy(inconsistency is d fear)

  3. Mendy is the right man for the job, else Lampard may just be putting his job on the line. Chelsea owner can be very ruthless with coaches when expectations are not met.

  4. Chelsea is delaying a lot signing Mendy when they know that Kepa is no longer capable of stoping any short unless they don’t want to be in the top four

  5. Kepa is not enough for this season, he needs someone to compete with him, and Mendy is the right person check their stats and see

  6. They should just level Kepa his a best in Europe okey guys relex give him some time when chelsea get good defender’s like Thiago Silva and you see the difference

  7. Mendy is good enough but they should just give kepa some time before if they want to sing Mendy then they sing him and give him to long

  8. Yeah i think u all make points, but i tink the deal has already placed, if not we should have moved 4pope or gigi rumma.

  9. Leave kepa, concede about 53 goals this season and i switch my support to John Terry’s Aston Villa.

  10. As chelsea has lost chances with jan oblak,mendy is the last option for lampard, let it not look as if he spent a lot of millions for nothing

  11. Chelsea owner is desperate to see what lampard we take home for him else lampard tell the rest and without mendy lampard risk his job and brought shame to chelsea.

  12. What we need right now is a keeper and not a kepa. Kept will bounce back but needs a new signing that will take the present pressure at a time that he is going through some serious psychological and emotional difficulty. They could as well loan him out to a club in Spain to regain himself.

  13. I do like kepa in person but his performance is not encouraging at all and I believe with Mendy it will both the club and kepa him self for kepa’s problem is over confidence

  14. Why all this negative rubbish, just get on with the ‘Job In Hand’,that’s ‘Beating Liverpool ‘Today’, it’s allway’s the same thing, i do not care about liverpool or any one else for that matter,just Chelsea beating Liverpool!!!
