Chelsea will be forced to sell several high-profile players, as the ramifications of Roman Abramovich’s decision to sell the club, will be felt across the entire club.
Last week, Abramovich confirmed his “incredibly difficult decision” to put the Blues up for sale, following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The 55-year-old made the decision to step away from the Stamford Bridge outfit, after it emerged he could come under UK government sanctions due to his closeness to the Russian state.
According to The Athletic, there are fears key figures, including Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia and Petr Cech will follow Abramovich out of the door.
Also, Chelsea are said to be ready to cash in on some players that they had not planned to sell during the summer transfer window.
Granovskaia’s potential departure raises concern as Antonio Rudiger, Cesar Azpilicueta and Andreas Christensen are all out of contract in the summer.
The club are still in the process of discussing their extensions and it is believed Granovskaia had been making headway with the Chelsea defenders.
However, her departure could now see a collapse in talks and uncertainty surrounding the futures of players.
