Chelsea Football Club “desperate” for sale as contract situation reaches critical moment; and a Player had agreement with Granovskaia to leave this summer
Barcelona president Joan Laporta revealed that the deal to bring Andreas Christensen from Chelsea to Barca is essentially done.
In addition, there was footage of Antonio Rudiger’s agent in the city meeting with two of Laporta’s directors.
Cesar Azpilicueta is also linked with a move to the Blaugrana.
Amid all uncertainty, the Chelsea Football Club is “desperate” to complete a sale to a new owner, according to James Robson in the Evening Standard.
As it stands, players can negotiate and sign new contracts elsewhere – but they can’t sign for Chelsea due to restrictions.
Until the deal is done, players can leave, but they can’t join.
Meanwhile, According to AS, Azpilicueta had reached an agreement with the club’s director that if he desired to bid farewell to the Blues, he would be allowed to do so.
That was until Roman Abramovich decided to put his empire up for sale, only to be subsequently sanctioned by the UK government.
Now, all transfer decisions will be down to the Russian’s successor, meaning Azpilicueta and Granovskaia’s agreement is pushed on to the next person in charge.
The Spain international had been nearing the end of his deal, but his employers took the decision partly out of his hands.
He could still bid farewell to Chelsea after a decade of concrete service this summer, with Barcelona seriously sniffing around Stamford Bridge.
However, Abramovich’s replacement might rip up the treaty Azpilicueta made with Granovskaia and give him no choice but to remain for at least one more campaign.
Azpilicueta apparently does not want to force a move out of South West London, no matter the circumstances surrounding the situation.
