Revealed: Why Édouard Mendy rejected Chelsea’s initial new contract offer

Édouard Mendy has rejected Chelsea’s initial new contract offer and here’s why...


Chelsea are attempting to renew the contracts of several of their key players.

The Blues have already agreed a deal with Reece James with the defending committing his future to the club until 2028.

Now, the west London club are working on deals to get Mason Mount and Édouard Mendy to also renew their terms.

Mendy rejects Chelsea’s new contract offer

Mendy has turned down Chelsea’s first contract offer, according to the Evening Standard.

The goalkeeper has rejected the terms which were lower than his deputy Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Spaniard agreed a deal worth £190,000 per week back in 2018.

The 30-year-old is currently one of the lowest-paid players at the club at around £52,000 per week.

Therefore, he would need a significant raise to be on level terms with his teammate.

His current deal also runs until 2025, so the two parties have time to negotiate.
