6 Chelsea Stars Have ‘Decided’ to Leave Stamford Bridge This Summer
- Chelsea are set for another summer upheaval that could see a number of players depart the club
- Reports claim that more than six players have already made the decision to quit the West London outfit
- The Blues endured a disappointing campaign this season that saw them finish 12th in the standings
As many as six Chelsea stars have reportedly 'decided' to quit Stamford Bridge after the club's disastrous 2022/23 season.
The Blues are set to usher in a new era this summer after hiring a new permanent manager, Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino was confirmed as Chelsea's new manager earlier in the week, with the Argentine set to replace Graham Potter, who was sacked back in February.
The 51-year-old already has his work cut out, considering how underwhelming the campaign was this season.
Part of Poch's rebuild plan involves shipping out players regarded as surplus to requirements in order to make room for new arrivals.
Chelsea stars ready to quit
It seems that some Chelsea players have already made the decision to quit this summer rather than wait for the axe to fall.
The Telegraph claims that 'more than half-a-dozen' players have been 'pretty open' with their desire to quit Stamford Bridge this summer.
Hakim Ziyech and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang headline a list of players who have been linked with an exit. Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, and captain Cesar Azpilicueta are also reportedly expected to depart the club.
Ziyech was previously linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain, while Auba could reunite with Barcelona again. Mount, meanwhile, is wanted by a string of Premier League clubs, including Manchester United, Arsenal, and Liverpool.
Elsewhere, Ruben Loftus-Cheek appeared to say his final goodbyes to fans during Chelsea's final game of the season against Newcastle ahead of a proposed move to the Serie A.
