Chelsea are “disrespectful”; says Edouard Mendy as rejects six-year contract offer 

Edouard Mendy rejects Chelsea six-year contract offer alleging that the club is not showing him enough ‘respect’.

According to reports, Edouard Mendy has rejected a new, six-year contract with Chelsea because the club is not according him enough “respect” regarding wages.

Mendy joined the Blues in 2020 from French side Rennes for £22m and he has since gone on to make 104 appearances for the club.

He started out as a star at Stamford Bridge, helping them win the Champions League in 2020–2021 and winning FIFA’s best goalie award in 2021. 

However, a combination of injuries and poor play cost him his position as the team’s starting goalkeeper this season.

And, according to The Sun, Mendy – whose current deal expires in 2025 – has rejected a new six-year contract at the club due to a dispute over wages.

Mendy is said to want a similar wage to Kepa, who is the world’s most expensive goalkeeper after joining from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 for £72m.

Chelsea have now reportedly withdrawn their initial offer to Mendy in an attempt to stand firm during the negotiations and there is a contract stand-off between the two parties.

Meanwhile, AC Milan, Nice, and Monaco are three clubs reportedly keeping an eye on his situation and would be interested in making a move for the keeper if an opportunity arises.
