Chelsea could opt to activate their £29.3m purchase clause on Saul Niguez.
Chelsea faces an uncertain picture in the summer transfer window as they delay their decision on Saul Niguez’s future.
The Premier League giants are facing big trouble due to current ownership. They have been hit hard with a restricted operating structure last week, as club owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned by the UK Government, due to his connections with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Chelsea are prohibited from any profit-making activity, aside from basic functioning, including player sales and purchases.
This is likely to force a slew of player exits ahead of the 2022/23 campaign if Abramovich is blocked from selling the club, with Niguez effectively caught in limbo in West London.
Meanwhile, a recent report from the Daily Mirror, Chelsea could opt to activate their £29.3m purchase clause on the Atletico Madrid loanee if restrictions remain tight.
Chelsea has to deal with so many issues ahead of the next season. They can lose top players in the summer which can hurt their 20222/23 campaign.
