Chelsea evening headlines as Mendy deal update given and Mbappe puts Blues on transfer alert

Here are your Chelsea evening headlines for Sunday, September 13.

Chelsea’s eighth summer signing ‘almost done’

Chelsea are on the verge of completing their eight summer signing with the arrival of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Stade Rennes.

According to the Athletic, the 28-year-old will join for a fee in the region of €20m including €5million in add-ons.

The arrival of a new goalkeeper is understood to be a ploy from Chelsea to push out-of-form Kepa Arrizabalaga who has struggled since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Athletic Bilbao.

Mendy had only joined Ligue 1 side Rennes last summer from Reims but a move to west London presents a good opportunity for the 28-year-old to impress with the number one jersey seemingly up for grabs.

Mbappe’s transfer decision puts Chelsea on alert

Kylian Mbappe has reportedly made a transfer decision that will put Chelsea and other global football powers on high alert.

According to The Times , the World Cup winner wants this season to be his last with Paris Saint-Germain as he eyes a new challenge.

Mbappe has enjoyed two years with the French champions since moving from Monaco for £165million in 2018 which means that very few clubs will be able to afford him if he does come on the market.

However, Chelsea could be one of those clubs if owner Roman Abramovich is willing to spend big to land one of the best players in world football.
