Edouard Mendy reportedly turned down a six-year contract offer from Chelsea because he believes he deserves financial parity with Kepa.Information Guide Nigeria
According to the Sun, the Blues have offered the Senegalese goalkeeper a new long-term contract in an effort to keep him at the club, two-and-a-half years before his current contract expires. However, he has rejected the offer because he believes the club is not showing him enough’respect’ in regards to his salary.
The 30-year-old apparently gets £100,000 per week, but he desires a salary comparable to that of his opponent Kepa Arrizabalaga, who is rumored to earn almost twice as much.
“Edouard is back at Chelsea and he is ready to play,” a club insider told the Sun. “But there is a feeling that the contract situation is just going nowhere.”
“Edouard has won some huge trophies for Chelsea, but there is a sense that he is not being shown enough respect by the club over a new deal.”JAMB portal
