Chelsea’s hands are tied in regards to signing new players this summer due to the well-publicized two-window transfer ban. As such, today’s transfer roundup is dominated by outgoings. We bring you news of a confirmed exit and two potential deals for star youngsters.
Sarri moves to Juve
It had been in the works for a while, but Maurizio Sarri has finally completed his move to Juventus. The Italian will move to the Serie A champions on a three-year deal, with the two clubs having agreed a compensation package in excess of £5m. Frank Lampard is to be approached for talks.
Abraham could return to Villa
Striker Tammy Abraham has left the door open to a return to Aston Villa this summer. The 21-year-old told Sky Sports, “You can never say never. Chelsea is obviously the club that I have been at since a young so the aim is to try and breakthrough there. Like I say, you can never say never. We’ll see how things look.” Abraham scored 26 goals on loan at Villa Park last campaign.
Exit for Martell Taylor-Crossdale
Chelsea youngster Martell Taylor-Crossdale is set to join Hoffenheim according to Sky Sports. The 19-year-old is out of contract this summer and, whilst the Blues made an offer to keep him, the England U20 international has decided to move to the Bundesliga on a free transfer.
