Revealed: Chelsea ready to sell Malang Sarr this week after Pochettino green light - sources

Chelsea are ready to let defender Malang Sarr leave the club with several clubs in Turkey monitoring his situation, sources have told Football Insider.

The 24-year-old has been made surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

It is believed there is no chance of him breaking into the plans of first-team boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Sarr is completely out of the picture at Chelsea and has not made a single matchday squad this season.

The former France Under-21 star could now seal another loan exit with the transfer window in Turkey still open until 15 September.

He has made just 21 appearances for Chelsea since joining the club on a free transfer in 2020.

Sarr, who is under contract until June 2025, has since been out on two loans at Monaco and Porto in the past two seasons.

The left-footer earns a reported wage of £120,000-a-week.

He made just 17 appearances across all competitions for Monaco last season.

Sarr remained a Chelsea player during the 2021-22 campaign and played 21 games across all competitions – including in the Club World Cup.

The Nice-born star can play at left-back as well as in central defence.

Chelsea added Axel Disasi to their ranks in the summer window and also kept hold of ex-Brighton loanee Levi Colwill, bolstering their defensive options.

The Blues have picked up just four points from their first four Premier League games of the new season.
