Chelsea do like to hang out the drama surrounding a new signing, especially so this transfer window.
But it all adds to the entertainment, and it has certainly been that for Chelsea fans this summer.
The Kai Havertz transfer saga seemed to go on for years, and now the Edouard Mendy to Chelsea transfer saga looks like it was trying to rival that.
The Rennes goalkeeper is finally set to be confirmed by Chelsea this week, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano.
He claims that we will see an ‘announcement’ made this week, with Mendy to Chelsea now ‘100% done’.

It will be a relief for Chelsea fans as they witnessed yet another shocking display from current number one Kepa Arrizabalaga in their defeat to Liverpool yesterday.
Ironically, Romano’s tweet update about Mendy came right after one of Kepa’s clinical errors yesterday! Talk about good timing!
Let’s hope Mendy will be announced and ready to play soon.
