‘This is NOT Football Manager you know?’ Well, somebody needs to tell this to Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board!
Chelsea could quite easily be playing a game of Football Manager or career mode on FIFA right now the way they are operating in the transfer market. But what a time to be a Blues fan!
The club have already announced 7 shiny new signings this summer in the shape of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Xavier Mbuyamba, Malang Sarr, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, and Kai Havertz.
They could now be about to announce number 8, with Rennes goalkeeper Edouard Mendy looking set to join the club.
According to three top sources, Mendy to Chelsea is a done deal, with the two clubs agreeing a fee and Mendy travelling to London yesterday.
When transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweets ‘here we go’ then we know there is no turning back now!
The new bid from Chelsea for Edouard Mendy has been accepted by Rennes: here we go! Deal to be completed on next days, the goalkeeper is ready to fly to London and he’ll have medicals soon. Personal terms agreed days ago. Lampard will have his new GK. 🔵 @DiMarzio #CFC #Chelsea https://t.co/iPXVcUm2ij
