  • Chelsea could offload as many as six players in the summer
  • One footballer that could leave the Blues is Raheem Sterling
  • The England winger has eight goals and nine assists this term

Raheem Sterling’s career could be set for another twist as Chelsea are reportedly prepared to lose him in the summer.

The 29-year-old has been in decent form for the Blues amid a poor season, netting eight goals and nine assists across all competitions.

Despite his performances, the Blues could be forced to part ways with him in a bid to comply with the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability regulations.

Since the arrival of new owners Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital in the summer of 2022, Chelsea has splurged big money on mega signings.

As a result, this has made Chelsea’s work in trying to adhere to financial regulations harder.

Todd Boehly’s meeting

According to Daily Mail, Boehly recently met up with the director of the Saudi Pro League Michael Emenalo in Riyadh. The meeting only fuelled speculation of a possible second exodus of Chelsea stars to the Middle East.

Kalidou Koulibaly and Edouard Mendy are two big names who were sold by Chelsea to Al Hilal and Al-Ahli respectively last summer for a fee, while N’Golo Kante left the Blues for Al-Ittihad on a free transfer.

Other Chelsea stars who could leave

Sterling is not the only Chelsea star on the chopping block.

Sports Mole reports that as many as six players could leave the West Londoners at the end of the current season, including Romelu Lukaku, who is on loan at Roma in the Serie A.

Kepa Arrizabalaga, Armando Broja, Trevoh Chalobah and Marc Cucurella are other big names set for a summer exit.

Cucurella’s exit would be bittersweet, particularly because the left-back was just finding his form for the Blues in his second season. The £62m signing however remains behind the likes of Ben Chilwell and Levi Colwill in Mauricio Pochettino’s pecking order.

Chelsea are reportedly under pressure to get their accounts in order before the June 30 deadline.

Players Cole Palmer is outperforming

Sports Brief also reported on some of the players Chelsea star Cole Palmer is outdoing this season.

The 21-year-old has scored 11 goals and provided eight assists in the league this season. Only Erling Haaland at his former club, City, has better stats.

His latest masterclass was during a 3-2 win over Newcastle United on Monday, March 11.
