Chelsea in London are having a truly disastrous and tragic season. They are currently only eleventh in the Premier League table, and they are also no longer in the Champions League. And to make matters worse, several players want to leave the club this summer!
The Athletic, a well-known newspaper, has come out with the information that several players are indeed planning to leave Chelsea in London in the last few dozen hours.
Whether the departure of several footballers will really happen is of course a question at the moment and we must remind you that this is still speculation. But the fact remains that the Stamford Bridge club is in big trouble in the current season.
It should be noted, if anyone can regularly bring credible information about clubs or potential transfers, The Athletic is one of them.
While he didn’t specify the players who have asked to leave, he has previously been linked with a move away, for example Mason Mount. He is in the last twelve months of his contract and rivals Arsenal are interested in his services.
In addition, Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has spoken of the club carrying out a fairly significant purge in the summer. Some players were even expected to express their regret at signing long-term contracts at the club.
According to the latest reports, players who were already signed under the new American owner are facing a 30% pay cut if Chelsea do not finish in positions guaranteeing Champions League qualification.
Objectively, however, it is worth noting whether to blame only the players for the London club’s setbacks. The now former coach Graham Potter clearly failed to put a typical game face on the squad and spending on new reinforcements without almost any team concept may not guarantee success.
Based on the information of the aforementioned newspaper, the players are significantly dissatisfied with the current happenings at the club. At the same time, its management is desperately trying to sort out the coaching position. For now, that is Frank Lampard after Chelsea sacked Potter.
However, which other footballers are to be considered? Kalidou Koulibaly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Conor Gallagher, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Edouard Mendy could also leave Chelsea’s squad in the summer.
And a big question mark also hangs over another key pair of players. It doesn’t look positive for Kai Havertz or N’Golo Kante.
