Chelsea are not done with the transfer window. While the winter window closed a month and a half ago, the Blues are already looking into the summer transfer market. After having spent more than 600 million euros during the last two transfer windows to buy 13 recruits, it is logically expected that the residents of Stamford Bridge will break the bank again this summer 2023. But according to the British press, Todd Boehly and his teams should calm things down a bit.

Their priority will be above all to degrease. The squad that Graham Potter has at his disposal is too large and there won’t be room for everyone. This is what ensures The Athletic which explains that several players will not be retained in the off-season. This is the case for free elements in June 2024, approximately one year from now. Either they agree to extend or Chelsea will show them the exit. They are several to be in this situation like Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mateo Kovacic, Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Several players could leave

And most of them are candidates for departure, in particular PEA, who no longer plays, or Mount, courted by several clubs. The British media adds that Londoners are also looking at free players in two years (in 2025) in order to anticipate and not be caught off guard. And there again, there are people who are concerned. Hakim Ziyech, Édouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Conor Gallagher, Kai Havertz or even Ben Chilwell are in this contractual situation. The door could open this summer for some including Mendy, Ziyech and Havertz. Same for Chilwell.

The Englishman could bring big money to the Blues, who have invested 56 million euros in 2020. They hope to raise a large sum and will not give any gifts since Manchester City want him according to The Athletic. His profile has long appealed to Pep Guardiola, who needs reinforcement following the departure of João Cancelo. A departure of Raheem Sterling is also not impossible. Finally, Chelsea cannot a priori count on the money from Inter Milan to get rid of Romelu Lukaku. The Italians do not want to keep the Belgian, who nevertheless wants to stay. Potter and the Blues don’t want it either. It will be necessary to succeed in finding him a base this summer and why not bail out the coffers a little. After spending lavishly, Chelsea wants to fill their pockets.
