According to The Telegraph via The Sun, Chelsea are planning to end the sponsorship deal with Three as Todd Boehly pursues a more lucrative deal.

The phone company’s logo has featured prominently on the Chelsea kit since 2020 in a deal worth £40million-a-year but Boehly is confident of securing a better deal for Chelsea.

Chelsea are said to have no plans to extend the contract of Three beyond this season.

Meanwhile, MLS side Los Angeles FC are interested in signing 33 year old Chelsea forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, according to Spanish sports website Relevo via Daily Mail.

LAFC is looking for a star name to join its roster after Gareth Bale’s retirement in the offseason and have identified Aubameyang as the ideal signing.

Aubameyang only joined Chelsea in September from Barcelona but has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and left out of Chelsea’s 25-man Champions League roster.

Aubameyang now faces a choice of either departing for Major League Soccer or sitting at Chelsea and not playing as much as he’d like.
