Edward Mendy’s Chelsea career
Chelsea have signed a lot of big money in the past year or so.
Timo Werner, Kay Havertz and Romelu Lukaku have all been brought into the club at very high prices.
However, perhaps Chelsea’s best business in the past few windows has come in the form of Edward Mendy.
The 29-year-old was signed from Stade Rennais, and it is believed that the fee is approximately 21 million pounds.
Mendy has since continued to usurp Kepa Arrizabalaga as the number one in the Blues, while performing some leading roles in the process.
Chelsea won the Champions League with Mendy as their first place and now has the best defensive record in the Premier League so far this season. Mendy is obviously an important reason.

Is Edward Mendy the best in the world?
Now, after another impressive performance by Chelsea over the weekend, Mendy has been highly praised by a former teammate.
Willy Caballero joined Chelsea in 2017 and will leave freely last summer, giving him the opportunity to get close to Mendy.
Now, the Argentine has expressed his opinion that Mendy is the best goalkeeper in the world-at least last year:
“I firmly believe that Ed Mendy is the best goalkeeper [in the world] -At this moment last year and this year, he was the best.
“When he came to the training ground last season, I saw a goalkeeper who was very talented in strength and speed-he dived very fast,” he explained.
“He has very long arms. As a goalkeeper, everyone wants this. He shows his calmness in every game, his feet are improving, and he plays well in the organization.
“He won points for Chelsea-not only last season, but also this season. He enjoys his performance at this level and keeps clean sheets.”
The Argentine added:
“I talked to him last season and I told him,’For me, you are the best goalkeeper at the moment, but you have to hold on for longer-next season, next season and next season’,” He explained.
“‘Because you only showed your ability for one season’-and he did a very good job.”
