Chelsea have been linked with many players recently, but one of those could be leaving his club this month, according to his own manager.
Xavi of Barcelona has been speaking to the press today and he made no secret of the fact he is growing frustrated with the contractual situations of some of his players. We know how he feels!

One of which, Ousmane Dembele, has been linked with Chelsea recently so it might be a situation that we might want to keep an eye on.
The forward becomes a free agent in the summer unless he signs a new deal, but Xavi is speaking like he could even be sold this month just to get the situation sorted out either way.
Xavi confirms Ousmane Dembele could leave the club this month:
“We have been at this for five months now. There have been conversations with the player and his agent and we can’t wait anymore.
“Either he renews his contract, or we look for a solution for the player.”

Demeble seems to be making pretty large demands, so I’m not sure how that would fit with the Chelsea board, but according to many reports, including this one below, Chelsea have already had contact with his agent…
