Several Chelsea players might bid farewell during the season’s concluding match against Bournemouth.

Gallagher Among Four Players Potentially Bidding Farewell to Chelsea Against Bournemouth

As Chelsea prepares for their upcoming match against Bournemouth this Sunday, transfer news suggests that four players, including Conor Gallagher, might be playing their final game for the club.

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher in action during the Premier League match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea FC at the American Express Community Stadium on May 15, 2024, in Brighton, England.

With six victories in their last nine league matches, Chelsea has surged to sixth place, trailing Tottenham by just three points and boasting a better goal difference. Considering the injuries Mauricio Pochettino’s squad has faced, clinching a Europa League spot would be a significant accomplishment.

To secure their place via the Premier League, Chelsea needs Tottenham to lose against Sheffield United and must also triumph over Bournemouth. However, even finishing below Tottenham might suffice if Manchester City defeats Manchester United in the FA Cup final. Due to goal difference, it is nearly impossible for Erik ten Hag’s team to overtake Chelsea.

Defender Ciaran, set to rejoin his boyhood club Fluminense, will leave Chelsea on good terms. This situation contrasts sharply with Malang Sarr, the 25-year-old defender still contracted to the club but not currently on loan.

Sarr, who has a year left on his contract, hasn’t played any senior football this season, indicating it’s likely time for both parties to part ways. Reviewing Chelsea’s current squad, few players seem poised to leave, but two homegrown talents might be on their way out.

Selling Trevoh Chalobah and Conor Gallagher would represent pure profit for Chelsea, significantly aiding their financial concerns. Losing these academy graduates would be painful, especially considering their vital roles this season.

Gallagher, if not for Cole Palmer, would have been a strong contender for Chelsea’s player of the season. Chalobah has also been crucial, contributing to a defense that has kept three clean sheets in the last six league games.
