Clubs sell their players for many reasons, one of which is that they do not perform well, and one of them is that they get paid more than they do on the field.
And there are clubs that face players at the end of their contracts who are busy moving to other teams, a year before the end of their official association with the club, which may cause crises or distractions, as happens in Manchester United with Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo.
There are players who do not have primary places in their teams, but they may find them in other teams, and from here some clubs can sell their stars for financial gain and to allow them to rediscover themselves in other places.
As for the English club, Chelsea, the international “sportskeeda” website confirmed that this summer it may have to sell 5 names that would be convenient for the club and the players themselves, in order to adjust its squad during the new season.
Hakim Ziyech is considered one of the most important deals concluded by Chelsea in recent years, and the most prominent deal in the summer of 2020 was in the first Mercato after the penalty of deprivation of contracts was lifted, and cost the club 33.3 million pounds.
But the Moroccan star, who had opportunities to participate in the first half of his inaugural season with the “Blues” due to coach Frank Lampard’s conviction in his capabilities, was marginalized during the era of current German coach Thomas Tuchel.
In addition, Hakim Ziyech suffered several injuries, and his total scoring contributions amounted to 24 goals in 83 matches, in which he scored 14 times and assisted 10.
Ziyech’s name has recently been associated with Italian Milan and Manchester United, where the Moroccan player still wants to complete his move to the Rossoneri in search of rediscovering himself again, while the United administration rejected the request of its coach Eric Ten Hag, the former coach of Ziash at Ajax Amsterdam to include the player.
The Belgian Michy Batshuayi is another of the names that Chelsea may have to sell in light of his lack of strong levels with the team.
The player who moved to the Blues from Olympique Marseille in the summer of 2016 for 33 million pounds, at the request of coach Antonio Conte, did not provide the level expected of him in the South London team.
But Batshuayi, who was loaned to German Borussia Dortmund and starred with him, did not have opportunities to participate in the basics at Stamford Bridge, whether with former coach Frank Lampard, or the current Tuchel.
Although he later moved to Crystal Palace and Turkish Besiktas, the Belgian star did not convince any club to sign him permanently, and therefore Chelsea must release him at the present time in light of Wolverhampton’s interest in borrowing him.
The Belgian player did not score more than 25 goals in 77 games for Chelsea, while during 4 loan periods to Dortmund, Valencia, Palace and Besiktas, he scored 34 goals in 112 matches.
Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga turned into the No. 2 goalkeeper in the team, thanks to the brilliance of his Senegalese colleague Edward Mendy on the one hand, and because of his disastrous mistakes personally on the other hand.
The Chelsea administration spent 72 million pounds on the inclusion of Kepa from Athletic Bilbao in 2018, to become the most expensive goalkeeper in history, but what the young goalkeeper provided in his first season made him out of the starting lineup for Frank Lampard, the former coach, and then Thomas Tuchel, the current coach.
Kepa’s status as a substitute player, despite being linked to a contract until 2025, makes it necessary for Chelsea to get rid of him, especially as he receives a large salary of up to 150,000 pounds per week.
The Italian club Napoli is the most linked club in the recent period to sign Kepa.
Rose Barkley, like Ziyech, was one of the most important promising stars, but he turned from Everton to Chelsea for a substitute player as well, which stopped his attacking abilities in the industry and registration.
The player, who came from Everton in 2018, was loaned last season to Aston Villa in the hope of finding an opportunity to participate in the main role, after he participated in the 2020-2021 season in only two league matches and 3 matches in total.
After Barkley achieved an average of 30 to 38 matches in the league, his participations with his arrival to Chelsea became rare, the last of which was 6 matches last season before he was loaned.
Everton is considered the club most interested in acquiring Barkley’s services at the present time and it does not seem that there is room for him to remain in the team.
The Brazilian defender Kennedy, who joined Chelsea from Brazilian Fluminense in 2015, is one of the most famous players who are not known to play in the Blues.
Kennedy was loaned 5 times during his time at Chelsea to teams Watford, Newcastle United, Getafe, Granada and Flamengo.
Kennedy played with Chelsea only 30 games, in which he scored 3 goals, knowing that 20 games were in his first season 2015-2016, before the loan series began.
It does not seem that the situation has changed regarding Kennedy, which makes it better for the Blues to dispense with him, especially since he has one year left on his contract, and then it is better to sell him for a fee rather than leave him for free after several months.
