Chelsea have terminated Ross Barkley’s contract.
The midfielder has left the club on a mutual consent and is currently a free agent.
He had one year left on his Chelsea contract and the club has paid him to make some room for new signings.
Since his arrival from Everton in 2018, he failed to make a major impact scoring 12 goals in 100 games for the Blues.

‘Ross Barkley has left Chelsea by mutual consent and becomes a free agent,’ the statement read.
‘The most memorable [goal he scored] was his injury-time equaliser against Manchester United in his first full season at the Bridge.
‘At the end of that campaign he helped us win the Europa League, scoring a spot-kick in the shoot-out victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the semis and then coming off the bench in the brilliant Baku triumph against Arsenal.
‘We would like to thank Ross for his contribution to Chelsea and wish him well for the rest of his career.’
