Édouard Mendy’s transfer “a gift from the sky” for the clubs of his youth career

Paris-Normandie report that Édouard Mendy’s former clubs will received more than €1m in fees combined following the player’s sale to Chelsea for €24m plus €6m in bonuses.

Les Municipaux du Havre, where Mendy played for 5 seasons between the ages of 14 and 19, will receive €540k, triple of their annual budget as a club, which is estimated at between €160k & €175k – “a gift that has fallen from the sky,” says Jean-Michel Naze, the club’s president.

Caucirauville, where Mendy played between the ages of 7 and 13, will receive 0.5% of the transfer, which is €120k, a multiple of four of the size of their yearly budget, whilst Ligue 2 side Le Havre will receive €60k, having had the player on their books between the ages of 13 and 14.

Last but by no means least, Cherbourg, who had Mendy in their ranks between the ages of 19 and 22, will receive 1.5% of the transfer, roughly €360k.
