Barkley’s contract ran until 2023. He received a handsome salary of over 200,000 euros per week. This coal should definitely be saved.

The playmaker was loaned to Aston Villa from 2020 to 2021, where he played 24 competitive games. Back at Chelsea, coach Tuchel no longer has any use for the professional. He has not been used this season.

Barkley switched from Everton to Chelsea in 2018 for around 17 million euros. His successor at the Tuchel Club could now also come from the Liverpool club. Because the Blues want to sign Anthony Gordon (21) from Everton.

However, coach Frank Lampard (44) had recently rejected reports that Everton had received an offer from Chelsea for Gordon (21). The coach made it clear on Friday: “No, it didn’t happen. He is our player and will remain so.”

Lampard continued: “Not only is he of great value to the club if you want to talk about finances, but above all to the team.”
