£50k-A-Week Chelsea Star Could Depart, Says Journalist

Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher could be on his way to Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reliable journalist Florian Plettenberg. The 23-year-old, who has struggled for regular game time at Stamford Bridge this season, may be looking to depart west London in search of regular starts elsewhere.

Gallagher’s future has been the subject of speculation for some time now, given his lack of game time for the Blues this season. Although he has been a key figure in the squad, he has only started 12 Premier League matches this term and may be looking for a new challenge.

Dortmund could provide the perfect opportunity for Gallagher to reignite his career, with the German giants said to be monitoring his situation. While talks are yet to begin, the midfielder’s valuation is understood to be around £44m.

This could be a great move for all parties involved. Chelsea could receive a good amount of money for Gallagher’s services, while the midfielder would get the chance to play regular football for one of Europe’s top sides.

However, there are question marks over whether Gallagher possesses the quality to become an elite midfielder for Chelsea. While he has shown plenty of promise during his time at Crystal Palace last season, he has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge.

With his contract set to expire in 2025, now may be the best time for Chelsea to cash in on Gallagher. If Dortmund are willing to pay a hefty fee, the Blues should allow him to depart and focus on bringing in players who can make a bigger impact in the first team.
