Transfer: Chelsea close to offloading two top stars as Cristiano Ronaldo returns to training

Chelsea is getting closer to offloading two of their key players this summer.

Goalkeeper, Arrizabalaga and defender, Malang Sarr before the end of the transfer window.

Kepa joined Chelsea in a deal worth about £71 million in 2018, and that was a world-record fee for a goalkeeper.

However, the Spaniard has failed to leave up to the expectations of fans as he has struggled to live up to his hefty price tag.

Former manager, Frank Lampard had to bring in Edouard Mendy, who now took over as Chelsea’s No.1.

The Spain goalkeeper played only just 11 Premier League appearances over the last two seasons.

He looks set to join Napoli on loan and journalist Fabrizio Romano reports that a meeting is scheduled between the two clubs on Tuesday.

Other reports also suggest that Chelsea will still have to pay 75 per cent of Kepa’s £150,000-a-week wages.

Meanwhile, Manchester United star, Cristiano Ronaldo reported for Manchester United training on Tuesday.

Climaxtrend  reported that the football icon left Old Trafford at half-time of their preseason friendly against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday.

The wantaway superstar played 45 minutes in a pre-season friendly on Sunday but left before the full-time whistle.

It is understood he remains intent on leaving the club this summer to pursue Champions League football, but the Red Devils are still reluctant to sell.
