Édouard Mendy’s stance over Chelsea exit revealed after losing starting spot to Kepa

Édouard Mendy’s Chelsea future is in doubt after losing his place in the line-up to Kepa Arrizabalaga.


Édouard Mendy has gone from The Best FIFA Goalkeeper to losing his spot in the Chelsea line-up to Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The Senegalese shot-stopper conceded nine times in Chelsea’s first six league matches and following the arrival of Graham Potter, he was dropped from the line-up.

Kepa now looks to have established himself as the Blues’ number one and left Mendy having to consider his future in west London.

Mendy’s Chelsea future in doubt

Not too long ago, Mendy was seen as one of the best goalkeepers in the world as he helped Chelsea to win the Champions League and the AFCON with Senegal.

The 30-year-old was producing some unbelievable performances which saw him win The Best FIFA Goalkeeper award back in 2021.

However, this season has been a very challenging one, with the keeper making some big errors and which subsequently saw him dropped from the Chelsea team.

Now, according to the Guardian, Mendy is considering his future at Stamford Bridge and will seek assurances over his playing time.

But it seems unlikely that he will be back in the team once the World Cup has finished with Kepa returning from injury.

Mendy’s current contract runs until 2024 and at this stage, he is reluctant to sign a new deal.

There has even been talk of the Blues targeting a move for Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez.
