Chelsea legend relieved he didn’t play for Todd Boehly as influential dressing room leader faces sale.

Chelsea co-owner Todd Boehly has faced criticism from former midfielder Emmanuel Petit over the potential sale of midfielder Conor Gallagher in the upcoming transfer window. Gallagher has been performing well for Chelsea this season, but there are concerns that his departure may be necessary to improve the club’s financial situation. Reports suggest that Chelsea are at risk of breaching profit and sustainability regulations, and the potential sale of Gallagher, an academy graduate with no transfer fee, would count as pure profit for the club.

Petit, who played for Chelsea between 2001 and 2004, expressed his dissatisfaction with the situation, stating that the club’s mismanagement has led to the possibility of Gallagher’s departure. He also criticized the board for running the club into the ground. Gallagher, who has been a standout performer for Chelsea, has attracted interest from Tottenham, but a potential transfer in January did not materialize due to the asking price.

In addition to Gallagher, the future of defender Reece James is also uncertain, with injuries limiting his playing time. Real Madrid has reportedly shown interest in a potential move for James. Both Gallagher and James being academy graduates, their potential sales could offset the club’s financial losses.

The uncertainty surrounding the potential departures of key players has raised concerns among Chelsea fans, with Petit expressing his relief at not being associated with the Boehly era. Despite Gallagher’s strong performances and leadership on the pitch, the club may be forced to consider his sale to address financial concerns.
