This latest development at Stamford Bridge came following the departure of Argentine goalie Willy Caballero who was released at the end of last season.

Mendy actually joined Chelsea last season and was superb for the Blues winning the Champions League title thereby becoming the first African goalie to do so with the Blues.

During his six-year stay at Manchester United, Sergio Romero made 61 appearances for the Red Devils as he was unable to beat David De Gea for the first-choice position according to report on UK Sun and Sportslens.

The return of Dean Henderson made Manchester United chiefs to release Sergio Romero and was initially linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

He was desperate to join Everton on loan last summer, but United blocked the move as they felt the Toffees were realistic challengers for European football.
