Chelsea Set For 12-Man Clearout But Romelu Lukaku Could Stay

In a stunning turn of events, Chelsea Football Club is reportedly preparing for a major summer clearout, while also making a decision regarding the future of Romelu Lukaku.

With Mauricio Pochettino now at the helm, Chelsea is gearing up for a significant overhaul ahead of the new season at Stamford Bridge.

Since his appointment last month, Pochettino has signed a two-year deal with an option for an additional year, indicating his long-term commitment to the club.

As the transfer window approaches, reports suggest that the West London side is considering parting ways with an astonishing 12 players in order to balance the books and create space for new signings.

Chelsea has made some notable acquisitions in the last two transfer windows, with the likes of Enzo Fernandez and Mykhailo Mudryk joining the ranks. However, in their pursuit of financial equilibrium, the club will now focus on offloading surplus players, as revealed by The Daily Mail.

Among those likely to depart is Mateo Kovacic, who is reportedly closing in on a move to treble-winners Manchester City after positive talks.

N’Golo Kante, a key figure in Chelsea’s midfield, is on the verge of a transfer to Saudi Arabia, while Manchester United is believed to be interested in acquiring the services of Mason Mount for the 2023/24 campaign.

Kai Havertz and Conor Gallagher are also rumored to be surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge, with Real Madrid keeping a watchful eye on the German international, and Newcastle United monitoring the situation of the talented English midfielder.

However, amidst the clearout, Chelsea is expected to have a conversation with Romelu Lukaku, assuring him that they are willing to work with him in the upcoming season. Yet, there is speculation that the 30-year-old Belgian striker may express his desire to leave the club.

However, his second stint at the club has not lived up to expectations, leading to a loan spell at Inter Milan this season.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the future of Romelu Lukaku remains uncertain. Chelsea’s decision to engage in a massive clearout highlights the club’s commitment to revitalizing the squad under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino.

With potential departures and new signings on the horizon, the football world eagerly awaits the next chapter of Chelsea’s evolution.
