Rennes captain Damien Da Silva has confirmed that Édouard Mendy is likely to leave the French club this summer.

The Senegalese goalkeeper has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea with various reports suggesting a deal is close to completion.

Despite being happy for Mendy, Da Silva says they are reluctant to see him leave the club.

“We are a little selfish, we don’t want to lose Edouard Mendy but it’s part of football and the transfer market,” Da Silva told Telefoot, as quoted by Metro.

“He’s a great goalkeeper who deserves what happens to him.”

Chelsea have already completed the signing of Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Kai Havertz this summer.
