A busy summer transfer window has seen the Blues balancing their books ahead of the next season.

Chelsea broke a number of Premier League transfer records in their first two transfer windows after the Todd Boehly-led takeover.

The club’s January spending alone amounted to £323m, a staggering number that was more than the total outlay of Bundesliga, Serie A, Ligue 1, and La Liga combined.

While the Blues have significantly improved their squad ahead of the next season, they need to sell a number of first-team players to avoid financial fair play sanctions.

The club’s extensive squad clearout has continued in full speed over the past few weeks, with eight players leaving Stamford Bridge.

Eduard Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly, Hakim Ziyech, and N’Golo Kante have all left for Saudi Arabian clubs, while Mateo Kovacic was signed by Manchester City.

Milan have completed a move for Ruben Loftus Cheek while also being in talks to sign Christian Pulisic. The club’s biggest sales so far have been Mason Mount and Kai Havertz, who join Manchester United and Arsenal, respectively.

Here’s the complete list of Chelsea’s departures during the 2022-23 transfer window.
