Just now, Chelsea officially announced that the team had signed Rennes goalkeeper Mendy, and the two sides signed until 2025.
It is worth mentioning that Mendy is the second goalkeeper to join Chelsea from Rennes, the first being Cech.
In 2004, Cech joined Chelsea from Rennes and played for the Blues until 2015, becoming one of the greatest goalkeepers in Chelsea history.
Mendy and Cech are somewhat similar in stature. Mendy is 197cm tall and Cech is 196cm tall, both of which belong to tall goalkeepers. We wish Mendy can also write his own legend in Chelsea.
