Kepa Arrizabalaga still remains the most expensive goalkeeper in the world, after Chelsea spent around £72m to sign up the Spaniard from Athletic Bilbao in 2018.

Kepa has struggled for form since coming to Chelsea and hit a new low under Frank Lampard before his sack.

Chelsea had gone on to sign Edouard Mendy to become first choice goalkeeper at the club, and Kepa dropped to the number two spot.

Mendy has been phenomenal in goal for Chelsea despite costing the club just £22m. The 29-year-old Senegal international has now revealed that he has a healthy relationship with Kepa and third choice goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli.

“My relationship with Kepa is very good, as is my relationship with Marcus [Bettinelli], the third person goalkeeper at Chelsea. We compete with interest,” Mendy told Egyptian outlet El Match TV during the international break.

“The most important thing is that the competition between the players is for the benefit of the team. The titles are for the club and not for the player.

“My relationship with my teammates is very good. I respect everyone and there is always a state of friendship between us.”
