Mavericksystemscorp.com – Chelsea are selling two of their first-team regulars to their Premier League rivals this summer – are they making a terrible mistake?
Chelsea need to trim their bloated squad and Mauricio Pochettino is wasting no time in doing so. Mateo Kovacic is closing in on a £25 million ($32m) switch to Manchester City, while Arsenal are on the verge of completing a £65m ($83m) move for Germany international Kai Havertz.
Neither player was at their best in a dismal 2022-23 campaign for the Blues but the decision to sell to Premier League rivals – with Mason Mount also likely to sign for Manchester United this summer – is likely to be questioned and criticised by supporters.
But what do you think? Is reducing the squad more important than the next destination for some of Chelsea’s underperforming stars? Let us know in the comments below!
