A lot of improvements are needed Chelsea squad since the New Coach yet to play any of the premier league matches since he took over the Blues manager job.
Although, the postponement of some premier league matches that Chelsea could have played were postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who who have been laid to rest.
Back to Chelsea goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, who is also Senegalese goalkeeper is currently tied to the club until 2025 but he wants a better deal if they expect him to extend his stay further.
Edouard Mendy signed for Chelsea at the beginning of the 2020/21 season, joining the new head coach Thomas Tuchel in their shared debut success in the Champions League.
Two seasons down and the keeper is regarded as one of the top stars in his position, leading his team for both club and country, after securing Senegal’s first ever AFCON title alongside World Cup qualification in March.
The Blues have already repaid players such as Reece James with a new contract following such an impressive career so far, and they’re now hoping to do the same with Mendy.
However, it seems negotiations have hit a wall after the player turned down Chelsea’s initial contract proposal.
According to Standard Sport journalist Nizaar Kinsella, he said;
“Number 16 was offered to his back-up goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who had negotiated a £190,000-a-week contract before Mendy arrived in 2018.”
