According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea is expected to generate approximately £130 million in transfer fees this month.
In order to address the need for funds, reduce the wage bill, and streamline the squad, Chelsea is actively pursuing player sales this summer. The club has made significant investments, totaling around £600 million, in the past two transfer windows.
Five outgoing transfers, with a combined value of £130 million, are on the verge of completion before June 30. These transfers will be factored into the current financial accounts, aligning with Chelsea’s objective to balance their expenditures.
One of the notable deals involves Kai Havertz, as Chelsea has reached an agreement with Arsenal for a £65 million transfer. Personal terms have already been agreed upon between Havertz and Arsenal.
Mateo Kovacic is set to join Manchester City after Chelsea agreed to a £30 million deal with Pep Guardiola’s side.
Hakim Ziyech, who arrived at Chelsea in 2020 for a fee slightly over £33 million, has agreed to a move to Al-Nassr, a team associated with Cristiano Ronaldo, for a fee of approximately £8 million.
Kalidou Koulibaly, who joined Chelsea from Napoli for £33 million last year, is poised to make a transfer to Al-Hilal for a fee exceeding £15 million.
Furthermore, Edouard Mendy, who was signed by Chelsea for £22 million from Rennes in 2020, is set to join Al-Ahli. Mendy’s market value is estimated to be at least £10 million.
Lastly, N’Golo Kante has completed a free transfer to Saudi Arabian club Al Ittihad, concluding his remarkable seven-year tenure at Stamford Bridge.
By executing these outgoing transfers, Chelsea aims to not only generate substantial funds but also create a more financially balanced structure and optimize the size of their squad.
