Chelsea star player will be sold in January if he doesn’t sign a new Chelsea contract
According to transfer expert Ben Jacobs, Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen will be sold in January if he doesn’t sign a new Chelsea contract.
Despite Burnley reaching an agreement with Chelsea to sign Maatsen during the summer transfer window, the left-back opted to instead remain at Chelsea.
Jacobs told SPTC: “I was surprised Ian Maatsen didn’t go to Burnley on a loan with an obligation to buy, especially after Marc Cucurella’s loan to Manchester United fell through.
“There are a lot of left-backs at the club suddenly, albeit Maatsen has been used in a more advanced position.
“Had Burnley offered £20-25m at the beginning of the window, Maatsen would have likely moved. But he got minutes in pre-season and was reluctant to exit, even knowing Burnley so well from his time with them on loan last season.
“Chelsea now want Maatsen to sign a new contract and if he doesn’t he’s another one who will be put on the market in January.”
