Todd Boehly reaffirms Potter’s backing which means these six players are at risk of leaving.
Since from every angle it is looking more like Todd Boehly is backing Graham Potter at every turn this will mean he is not leaving and at his expense there are six Chelsea players who could be leaving the club should their contract end and they are listed as below;
A report from the Telegraph has detailed a number of key players at Chelsea that are now facing uncertain futures following their poor form, with Todd Boehly set to stand firm on his backing of Potter by moving underperforming players on in the transfer window.
The report states that there is no option or obligation for the Blues to buy new signing Joao Felix in his loan agreement until the end of the season, but the club remain confident they will be able to sign him permanently from Atletico Madrid should he perform well and if the club wish to.
Player sales will be just as important as new signings in the summer, but Chelsea’s biggest issue will be finding buyers and interested clubs for the highly-paid stars they are willing to sell and loan out. Hakim Ziyech, Kai Havertz and Pulisic are all facing uncertain futures at Stamford Bridge given their poor form for the club this term.
Jorginho may be allowed to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season and interest in captain Cesar Azpilicueta could be considered, despite the Spaniard signing a new deal at the start of the 2022/23 campaign.
The report goes on to state that there is also the possibility of Chelsea cutting their losses on defender Kalidou Koulibaly if an offer arrives from Italy, while the club are unlikely to stand in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s way if he decides he wants to return to Spain or move elsewhere.
Potter’s position as Blues boss is thought to be safe regardless if the club miss out on a top-four spot. Boehly is ready to continue ringing the changes at Stamford Bridge by selling out-of-form players to raise funds to bring in replacements if needed.
