Chelsea "open talks" with Gianluigi Donnarumma despite Mendy signing

Sat 02 January 2021 | 19:10

Reportedly, Chelsea have contacted AC Milan keeper, Gianluigi Donnarumma, despite bringing in Edouard Mendy in the summer window. Mendy was moved in from Rennes after Kepa Arrizabalaga started the season in weak form.

Mendy

has had a remarkable start to his Stamford Bridge career, having ten clean sheets in his opening 19 games for the team.

Chelsea

have spent a world-record fee to get Kepa back in 2018, but Frank Lampard has admitted he has no problem bringing him back.

"There’s no pressure [to pick Kepa], and I am not saying it is being spoken about, it is to win games.

"I do that through selections game-by-game and Mendy, of course, has made himself a permanent fixture at this point.

"The pressure to win games means I pick people in form whether it is a striker, winger or goalkeeper, whoever. “

The Blues could offer a load of money for

Donnarumma

, who is out of the deal at the San Siro at the end of the season.

Juventus and Inter are also challenging for the Italian international, while Milan hope to sign a new deal for him.

Reportedly, the Rossoneri have offered

Donnarumma

a £6m-per-year deal, but he is still considering his options.
