How Chelsea could rake in £264m by offloading deadwood with EIGHT players’ futures up in air after transfer spree

CHELSEA have spent more than £500MILLION on players since new owner Todd Boehly’s arrival just eight months ago.

The Blues broke the British transfer fee record on deadline day by signing Argentine midfielder Enzo Fernandez for a staggering £107m.

The World Cup winner, 22, took Chelsea‘s January spree to £326m as he joined Mykhailo Mudryk, Benoit Badiashile, Noni Madueke, Malo Gusto, Andrey Santos, David Datro Fofana and Joao Felix in the list of new arrivals this month.

In return for the HALF A BILLION POUNDS spent since Boehly walked through the door, the Premier League giants have recouped less than £60m in sales.

And the shear number of players brought in also means manager Graham Potter will only be able to register three of the signings for their Champions League last-16 clash with Borussia Dortmund.

The size of Chelsea’s squad means a mass exodus is expected to take place at the end of the season.

And there are a number of players whose futures are up in the air heading into the summer.

SunSport have worked out that the Blues could raise as much as £264m by getting rid of eight stars who may be surplus to requirements in the coming months.

Among them is England international Raheem Sterling.

The former Man City man, 28, arrived for £50m in the summer but has registered just nine goal contributions in 22 games.

And with his contract running until 2027, the Blues could negotiate a substantial fee for him, turning a profit in the process.

German forward Kai Havertz is another who could leave this summer.

Potter has utilised him as the focal point of the team’s attack this season.

But Havertz, 23, has only managed to return six goals in 27 appearances and fans are growing increasingly frustrated.

Other attacking players set to be on their way out include Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, 33, Christian Pulisic, 24, and Hakim Ziyech, 29, with the latter trying to force through a loan move to PSG in search of more minutes.

Armando Broja is another Chelsea forward lacking game time, with just three starts all season.

Meanwhile, the departure of Jorginho to Arsenal meant Chelsea turned down Everton’s £45m bid for Conor Gallagher, 22, as they require the extra cover.

But they may still opt to offload him in the summer when they have time to find a replacement.

And Ruben Loftus-Cheek could join Gallagher in leaving Stamford Bridge, with the 27-year-old having not started a game since early November.
