Chelsea preferred Mendy over Donnarumma

According to Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea had a shot at Gianluigi Donnaruma a few months ago, and may have been ahead of PSG when it came to signing him as a free agent. However, at Stamford Bridge they put the priority sign on Edouard Mendy, stating that he will be their “goalkeeper for years to come as well.”

In this way, they wanted to demonstrate the confidence they profess in the former Rennes team, who came to seize ownership from Kepa and has now become untouchable for the entity and an indispensable piece for Thomas Tuchel. A) Yes, they turned their backs on a Donnarumma who would end up exchanging Milan for Paris. Keylor Navas would surely have appreciated this ‘alliance’, since he now competes with the Italian for a position that was his without discussion until this summer.
