The fee could reach up to 28M euros after bonuses according to The Guardian. That's a bit much IMO. If that's true, I fail to understand how Mendy is seen as a cheap alternative while Onana is rumoured to be available for around 30.

Mendy is much better.

Well if he actives the bonuses then that will mean he's living upto expectations.

I guess we would need to sign Mendy in the next three days max if we want him to start against Brighton. 

Ironically, Kepa was motm when we played there on January 1st.

I would assume the club see Mendy as a better alternative to Onana, not a cheaper one.

Whether he's actually better or not is a whole other question but that's how Cech, Lollichon etc. see it.

This is a transfer we have to trust the likes of Cech on etc....There is a fine margin here as we paid through the nose for Kepa, he's shite so people are hardly jumping through hoops to buy him or take him on loan I assume.

It speaks to me like the club buying Mendy, starting him and saying to Kepa "This is how you do it"

Could be wrong but I simply cannot see anyone being worse than Kepa.

Like mendy is an average keeper.

But kepa was expected to concede like 35 goals last year based on xg and conceded like 46 so an average keeper is a massive upgrade.

Then what you've gotta add into that is that from open play we allowed the 3rd fewest shots with our biggest weakness being set pieces. A big keeper to claim those would help to address a big issue of ours. Our defence was bad last year for sure but no where near as bad as our goals conceded would make it seem.

Also...

Watching all or nothing with spurs we are so lucky we don't have a Daniel levy type or any of them people in high up positions in our club.

If we could pull a Chilwell and get Rice for like 20-30m under what WH are reported to want then that would be mad.

Would WH have the ability to adequately replace him, though? That's the biggest hurdle. If Dec comes out and hands in a transfer request and demands to be sold to Chelsea I think it could happen. Oh, and we'd also have to sell Barkley and Jorginho.

Bakayoko, Michy and Ross for Rice would be good offer for them.

But Marina probably rates Rice 60m, Barkley 40m, Bakayoko 30m, Michy 25m so no chance...

Maybe Cech is like me and doesn't want to see a short goalkeeper at Chelsea. Hilario, Cudicini, I never felt comfortable with them.-_-
