SHOCKING NEWS coming live from Fabrizio Romano, Chelsea will make a SHOCK January sale to pay for the transfer of a striker. Chelsea could be forced into selling a number of academy graduates next year, with Conor Gallagher reportedly being considered as a shock January exit for Mauricio Pochettino.

Next year, Chelsea might have to let go of several academy grads. Conor Gallagher, for example, is rumoured to be Mauricio Pochettino's surprise January departure target.


The Blues are currently bearing the costs of their three-transaction window spending spree, during which owner Todd Boehly has seen the team spend in excess of £1 billion on players.

Due to the extraordinary expenditure, Chelsea may have violated financial fair play regulations. As a result, the Premier League team will likely look to sell academy players, who are recorded as pure profit.

Following the summer sales of players like Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Callum Hudson-Odoi, Gallagher may be the next ex-Cobham player to depart Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Mail reports that offers for Gallagher, who is 23 years old and approaching the last 18 months of his contract, will be taken into consideration in January in order to raise money to strengthen Pochettino’s team.

Pochettino is in a desperate search for a striker in January, and Chelsea is considering Ivan Toney or Victor Osimhen. But, given the club’s financial limitations, a move for either player would necessitate a sizable sale, similar to that of Gallagher.

How a deadlock in the contract could force Gallagher out
This season, Gallagher has been a rare bright spot for Chelsea, improving all around and solidifying his position in Pochettino’s squad. He only missed his first Premier League match due to suspension last weekend.

Chelsea has not, however, formally extended an offer to Gallagher for a new contract. Instead, talks are ongoing regarding whether it would be more prudent to cash in on the midfield player given the club’s difficulties adhering to spending regulations.

Gallagher is reportedly unconvinced to sign a new contract if one were offered because Chelsea insists on giving their star players eight-year contracts.

Gallagher was wanted by Chelsea in the summer, but neither Tottenham nor West Ham was ready to pay the £45 million asking price. However, they could try again in January.
