- Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, whose contracts expire at the end of the season, are likely to leave the club for no reason.
There has become a state of uncertainty about the future of a number of Chelsea FC stars, after the club’s major administrative crisis, following the British government’s decision to freeze the assets and properties of the Russian club’s owner Roman Abramovich, against the backdrop of Russian military operations against Ukraine about two weeks ago.
The British government decided to freeze all the assets of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of Chelsea, which will stop the sale of the club.
The move by the British government against Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich comes as part of its plan to punish the Russian oligarchs of businessmen close to Vladimir Putin, the leader of the Russian wars on Ukraine.
In addition to losing vital revenue streams such as the ability to sell match day tickets and club merchandise, Champions League holders cannot commit any players to new contracts, and if the club remains in the same status until the end of the season, they will not be able to buy or sell any players.
This means that the trio of Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, whose contracts expire at the end of the season, are likely to leave the club for no reason.
This is a very big crisis for the Blues, the prospect of losing their captain and two of the best defenders in the Premier League with no way to sign any alternatives.
