‘We Should Just Release Them All For Free’ Thanks to Marina’ Fans React As Matt Law Names 5 Players That Chelsea Have Been Unable To Sell


Chelsea have not managed to find any buyers for the likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga, Michy Batshuayi, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech and Kenedy this summer, according to the Daily Telegraph ‘s Matt Law .

The reliable journalist claims that a combination of high wages and poor performances have meant clubs have held back from making offers for some of the Blues’ unwanted players:

Fans on Twitter are not particularly impressed with Chelsea’s attempts to sell off some of these players, and some have laid the blame at the feet of previous managing director Marina Granovskaia: We should just release them all for free — Big Jay🦊 (@omojaytee2) July 21, 2022

Thanks to Marina 😌. — Utkarsh Rai ⭐⭐ (@hazards_fan) July 21, 2022

If you can't sell them, just gift them out. We are tired of them. — Simon Bless (@SimonBless10) July 21, 2022

Marina did a lot of damage — Horpizzy official (@Horpizzy2) July 21, 2022

They should terminate their contact period — muhd (@cfc_muhd) July 21, 2022

Marina was hanging out contract extensions for fringe players like candy. Good luck to all involved. — Kach (@Kachi188) July 21, 2022

That doesn't really achieve much when the fundamental issue is their cost on the wage bill. — Adam (@CFC12thMan) July 21, 2022

Ridiculous that some of these players were given extensions when going out on loans by previous ownership on the chance they’d strike gold 臘♂️. Best thing to do now is to terminate the contracts with a year left, the likes of Barkley, Batshuayi, Kenedy etc… — CFCMXTT (@CFCMXTT) July 21, 2022

It does look as if the Blues may have to loan out some of these players to get them off the club’s books. Kepa has been attracting interest from Lazio, while Ziyech has been pursued by AC Milan.

Things are less promising for Batshuayi and Kenedy so there may come a point where a mutual termination of their contracts is considered, especially as both are already in the final year of their current deals.

With Werner, it looks almost certain that he will remain at Stamford Bridge as his astronomically high salary has scared off any potential suitors.
