Edou Mendy has not yet signed with Al Ahli, but it will come soon. This week is the week for Mendy, Koulibaly, and Ziyech deals to close, according to Romano’s tweet.

Chelsea will surely miss Edouard Mendy.

Mendy appeared to be one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League when he joined Chelsea in 2020 following the unsuccessful signing of Kepa Arrizabalaga. His raw shot-stopping talent was a constant sight to behold.

Despite this, he is now a far less dependable choice than he was before due to injuries and periods of bad form. Over the past few months, Kepa, the player he was brought in to replace, has frequently found himself in the starting lineup.

Mendy, who is 31 years old, is also not growing any younger. As a result, a clean separation can be the wisest decision for all parties.

Summary of Edouard Mendy’s career

Mendy spent some time in the Le Havre youth program before making his debut, but Cherbourg hired him in 2011 after he never played professionally for Les Ciel et Marine.

In 2016, he signed with Reims after appearing just 26 times in three seasons with Cherbourg. While he was a member of the club, his international notoriety started to grow.

Later, in 2020, he joined Chelsea, where he won the 2021 Champions League. In the championship game, he recorded a clean sheet as the Blues overcame Manchester City 1-0.
