UPDATE – Chelsea released the wrong team news. I’m REVERSING THIS TRANSFER
This is a fairly straightforward long term move. Schmeichel is coming out and Mendy is coming in. The reason for making the transfer now is that I’ve let Mendy go up in value too much over the past few weeks. I want to bring him in now as Chelsea have good fixtures in April and I’ll stick with him until the end of the season. Mendy also has a higher probability of a clean sheet compared to Schmeichel this weekend – as he’s starting against Sheff Utd. Whereas Leicester play Man Utd. This does leave me stuck with Son and Rashford – both potentially injured. However, it’s a single game week and they will have the international break to recover. There also isn’t an obvious option for who to bring in with Werner on the bench. This only leaves Aubameyang for me, who could be a good option but I’d rather get the keeper position sorted while I’ve got the chance.
