Chelsea offer Ross Barkley to two Premier League clubs as they look to offload £100k-a-week flop in summer transfer | The Sun

CHELSEA have offered Ross Barkley to TWO Premier League rivals as new owner Todd Boehly looks to trim the fat in his squad, according to reports.

The former England international, 28, earns over £100,000-a-week at Stamford Bridge.

And Boehly is keen to get that sky-high pay packet off his books.

The Mirror report the Blues are so keen to get rid of the outcast midfielder they have even offered him to two of his former clubs – Aston Villa and Everton.

Barkley only managed six Prem appearances last season under Thomas Tuchel.

And he was close to returning to his boyhood club Everton in January on a loan deal.

And The German coach did not exactly quash rumours of a departure back in January.

The Chelsea boss said: “We haven’t discussed a loan deal yet. It depends what Ross wants and what possibilities there are and what makes sense. Let’s see.

"There’s always a chance it is not like it is the FA Cup and here’s your chance.

"There’s always a chance to make it onto the pitch, especially with a lot of Covid and injury cases."
