Granovskaia opens up and reveals why £22 million Mendy was signed by Chelsea this summer window

Get the Chelsea word out there!

Marina Granovskaia has opened up and revealed just why Chelsea decided to sign stopper Edouard Mendy.

There has been no doubt that we have been the most active side in the transfer market this summer as Frank Lampard looks to build a side that is capable of winning that Premier League title.

The strike-force has been improved, the midfield has been added too, the defence has two top-class players added to the squad and now Frank Lampard has managed to add a stopper to the squad that will give the club more options other than Willy Caballero or Kepa.

And Granovskaia has opened up and revealed why we decided to splash the cash and sign the big stopper on a £22 million transfer deal, On signing Mendy, Granovskaia said on the club website: ‘As soon as Petr Cech and our technical team identified Edouard as the most suitable goalkeeper to complement our existing group, there was only one player we wanted to bring in.

‘Edouard arrives following a season of real success with Rennes, he is ambitious for more, and we welcome him to our club.’

There has been no doubt that we have done some wonderful transfer business this summer and the fans are very excited to see just what the new players can offer the side, so the arrival of Mendy is a good one for the club.

He will be commanding in that box and will hopefully add a bit more stability to the back-line.
