“Fully committed to contribute to the club’s sporting success. ?❤️ #ViscaBarca”

Nevertheless, Chelsea are set to complete the transfer of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on transfer deadline day.

Meanwhile, with 10 months remaining on his previous contract, Chelsea youngster Harvey Vale has signed a new contract with Chelsea and has moved on loan to Hull City.

The 18-year-old is highly rated at the club and it’s good that he won’t be leaving the club for free.
