Edouard Mendy completed his move away from Chelsea yesterday after three years at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues continued their summer exodus this week by selling Edouard Mendy, 31, to Saudi Arabia club Al-Ahil.

Incidentally, the transfer took place the same day that the Blues sold Kai Havertz to Arsenal.

Mendy, who developed into a top-class goalkeeper for Chelsea, should be leaving the club with his head held very high.

He’s posted a heartfelt message on Instagram yesterday after confirmation of his move.

Interestingly, former Chelsea boss Frank Lampard responded in the comment section to praise the 31-year-old keeper.

Lampard wrote: “Good luck Edu.. a Gentleman and fantastic goalkeeper.”

Mendy’s finest in Chelsea colours was certainly his debut season, playing a crucial role in the club winning the Champions League.

The Senegal international kept nine clean sheets in 12 games en route to winning Europe’s elite club competition.

It’s worth highlighting his fantastic record of 49 clean sheets in 105 Blues appearances in total, too.

With Mendy gone, Kepa Arrizabalaga is the senior goalkeeper left standing at Stamford Bridge right now.

Sky Sports has claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is happy with Kepa starting the season as Chelsea’s first-choice gloveman.

We would prefer a top-quality keeper join this summer to challenge Kepa, though.
