Chelsea and Al-Ahli Reach Verbal Agreement for Edouard Mendy Transfer according to reports.
According to renowned transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea has reportedly reached a verbal agreement with Saudi Arabian club Al-Ahli for the sale of goalkeeper Edouard Mendy this summer. Mendy, whose contract at Stamford Bridge has just two years remaining. Has been surrounded by uncertainty regarding his future, leading to speculation about a potential exit.
Despite Mendy’s instrumental role in Chelsea’s triumphant Champions League campaign in 2021. Concerns have arisen over his form and injury record. As a result, a transfer away from the club appears to be the most likely outcome. With an agreement seemingly now in place with Al-Ahli.
Firstly, considering the concerns surrounding Edouard Mendy’s form and injury record. A move to Al-Ahli appears to be in the best interest of all parties in involvement. The goalkeeper is to have been in agreement to a three-year contract with Al-Ahli. Pending the finalization of paperwork and official confirmation. This move would see Mendy join several other Chelsea players in the Saudi Arabian league.

Secondly, The Saudi state’s Public Investment Fund recently announced significant investments in football clubs. Leading to a recruitment drive for top-tier players. Chelsea is at the center of this activity. As in evidence by N’Golo Kante’s confirmed transfer to Al-Ittihad. Which is announcement late on Tuesday night.
Moreover, Chelsea could consider Kepa Arrizabalaga as an option for the goalkeeper position. However, the latest speculation links Porto’s promising 23-year-old goalkeeper, Diogo Costa. As a potential incoming transfer. Costa has impressed at a young age. And Manchester United has been consistently been in links with him as they seek a replacement for David De Gea.
Although Manchester United remains uncertain about De Gea’s future as he enters the final year of his contract, negotiations are ongoing. Chelsea’s swift action in securing Mendy’s transfer allows them to focus on acquiring a new goalkeeper. However, this development brings them closer to securing their desired replacement. Although they would need to potentially outmaneuver Manchester United in the process.
