Chelsea plan ‘eight-man fire sale’ ahead of summer transfer window

Chelsea are planning an ‘eight-man fire sale’ ahead of the summer transfer window, as the west Londoners look to balance the books.

Chelsea have set record-breaking figures after spending around £600m on new players since last summer’s transfer window, including the £106.1m British transfer record capture of Enzo Fernandez from Benfica.


The Blues are understood to require substantial sales in order to meet Financial Fair Play rules, after the club posted losses of £121.3m for 2021/22. Chelsea also look set to miss out on Europe, which the Daily Mail are reporting will lead to an exodus of players.

Mason Mount looks set to headline the departures at Chelsea after talks over a new deal broke down, with Liverpool reported to have made the signing of the England midfielder a ‘priority’ after cooling interest in Jude Bellingham.

N’Golo Kante – who is out of contract this summer – and Mateo Kovacic could also leave, while Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are also expected to depart after struggling for form and favour.

Chelsea could look to move on academy produced players in a bid to bring in ‘pure profit’ to the club’s accounts, with Mount, Conor Gallagher and Ruben Loftus-Cheek the homegrown names who could move on.

Gallagher has struggled to command a regular role since returning from a successful loan at Crystal Palace last season and has a large number of Premier League suitors. Everton made an approach for the England international in January, while Newcastle and West Ham have monitored his situation.
