Chelsea Ready to Open Contract Talks with Midfielder They Tried to Sell Less Than Two Months Ago

Chelsea intends to speak with Conor Gallagher about his future at the club.

Gallagher has started all but one game under Mauricio Pochettino so far this season. He has also captained Chelsea in four of their nine games in the absence of Reece James and Ben Chilwell.

Gallagher is currently in the final two years of his current contract, which expires in 2025.
Since being acquired by Todd Boehly/Clearlake Capital a year ago, Chelsea has been adamant about avoiding this circumstance.

In addition, they are preparing to meet with Gallagher to discuss what is best for all parties as he approaches the final 18 months of his current contract.
Chelsea is pleased with the 23-year-old who has produced a number of aggressive performances this season.

However, his future was uncertain during the previous transfer window, with West Ham and Tottenham expressing interest in a £40 million bid for Gallagher that ultimately failed.
Since January, the high-priced arrivals of Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo, and Romeo Lavia have significantly increased competition for positions in Chelsea’s central midfield.

However, when linked with moves away in the past, Gallagher’s preference has been to remain and fight for his position, and he reaffirmed his ties to Chelsea on Monday after Chelsea’s 2-0 victory at Fulham.

He said: ‘It’s a really proud time for me to captain the club the few times I have.

‘You know how much it means to me and how much I want to do well at Chelsea because it’s my club that I’ve supported my whole life so to captain the club for a few games is amazing and I just want to keep trying to perform the best I can to help the team win games so hopefully I can continue to do that.’
