Edouard Mendy ‘considering his future at Chelsea and could leave in transfer exit’ after losing No1 spot.
According to reports, Chelsea star Edouard Mendy is considering his stay at Stamford Bridge after losing the starting role to Kepa Arrizabalaga.
In 2020, the 30-year-old transferred from Rennes to the Blues in a deal worth £22 million.
Senegal shot-stopper Mendy helped the club win their second-ever Champions League.
Chelsea also won the Super Cup, and Club World Cup and reached the finals of both domestic cups.
However, following Thomas Tuchel’s September sacking, Mendy has lost his No1 spot under new boss Graham Potter.
Additionally, Mendy is reportedly evaluating his future at Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Mail.
Potter is reportedly interested in making a bid on Robert Sanchez’s former club Brighton as an option amid Mendy’s future uncertainty.
Due to Kepa’s foot injury, Mendy has started Chelsea’s last three games, all of which they lost.
Despite this, Mendy is still optimistic that he will be able to justify why he deserves to retake the top rank.
Mendy might have to wait until the summer to find a move as Chelsea are unlikely to approve a deal during the January transfer window.
Mendy’s contract expires in 2025 and there have been relatively little developments in the negotiations to extend it.
Mendy’s focus, for now, is on the World Cup, where he is a guaranteed starter for Senegal.
The Africa Cup of Nations champions are contesting Group A, where they will need to edge out two of Holland, Qatar, and Ecuador for a place in the knockouts.
