Chelsea won't be forced to sell £100k-per-week star

Chelsea will not find themselves in a position where they have to sell Mykhailo Mudryk in the summer.

The former joined AS Roma last summer, while the latter moved to Borussia Dortmund during the January transfer window.

According to Jacobs, Mudryk is not the first player Chelsea will be looking to sell in the summer.

On the club’s plans, he said: “Come the summer, Chelsea have other names on the permanent sale list, deemed surplus to requirements for which they can pull in fees. Lukaku is one, and Maatsen is another that Chelsea would have sold in January if they could have done so.

“Money will likely come in when the obligation is triggered for Lewis Hall at Newcastle. The feeling is that it’s a case of when or if he permanently moves there based on the obligation terms. There’s [Trevoh] Chalobah, possibly [Marc] Cucurella, and [Conor] Gallagher. So, there are enough other sellable assets that would mean Chelsea would not be forced to bring in a fee for Mudryk.”

Now is not the right time to sell Mudryk. It is true, he has found things difficult at Chelsea and has been overlooked by Mauricio Pochettino of late. At the same time, though, he has looked like a really dangerous winger in some games.

Against Everton back in December, for example, the Ukrainian completed five dribbles, more than any other player on the pitch (WhoScored).

He is only 23 as well so still has time to mature as a wide man. It may be worth loaning him out to another Premier League club and seeing how he does as a regular starter before making a decision on his future.

Bayern Munich reportedly looked at signing the Ukraine international in the last transfer window, so he is still clearly rated in the game.

Mudryk has really struggled at Chelsea, though, scoring just four goals for them since his arrival from Shakhtar Donetsk last year. It will certainly be interesting to see what the club do with the £100,000-a-week attacker.
