Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has informed the club that he wants to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Former Blues player Craig Burley told ESPN that he believes, Lampard wants Kepa out.
The world’s most expensive goalkeeper has not only had troubles in form but also with his attitude with former Chelsea managers and under Lampard he seems not to have improved.
“My understanding is that Lampard told the board he wanted Kepa out, for whatever reason,” said Burley.
“His performances, attitude, clash of personalities – whatever. That’s okay going to the board and saying that, but when you’ve paid the money they have for a goalkeeper, and it was a lot of money, they’ll be quite happy to sell him.
“They’re only going to sell and go down that road if they get a huge chunk of that money back. It could be a potential disaster for them.
“There’s a battle of wills there, before the shutdown, between manager and board. We saw Willy Caballero play some games, we saw Kepa coming back in, so it’ll be interesting seeing how this one plays out.
“What we do know is that Chelsea are unlikely to recoup what they paid for the Spanish keeper.”
