Chelsea do not intend to reopen talks on a new contract for goalkeeper Edouard Mendy at this time..
Chelsea made the big decision to bring Mendy to Stamford Bridge a few seasons ago after hearing rave reviews about the player – and despite all the criticism about his move to London, he turned out to be a quality buy.

Graham Potter has given young Spaniard Kepa a chance in that starting spot, and he has impressed so much that Mendy has grown dissatisfied with his performance..
His contract expires in a couple of seasons, and it appears that Chelsea has made a decision about his long-term future, as they will not enter into contract negotiations with the goalkeeper..
According to journalist Simon Phillips, “Chelsea want to evaluate this situation at the end of the season, so nothing will happen before then.” They obviously started contract negotiations with Mendy two months ago; they’ve been stalled and stopped.
“At the moment, Chelsea do not intend to reopen talks, and people on Mendy’s side are also keen to assess their options.”
“So they’re going to wait and see how the rest of the season goes..
