Pat Nevin has opened up and claimed that both Pedro and Willian will be leaving Chelsea at the end of the season.
The Premier League season is in limbo right now and nobody knows if the campaign will get back on track before the transfer window opens up, but that has not stopped speculation about players coming and going at the Bridge.
And that means both Pedro and Willian have been talked about on a weekly basis, with the Brazilian star keen to stay, but we are not prepared to offer him the kind of deal that he wants, while Pedro has has his time at the top and is now ready for something a little easier.
Now, Nevin has opened up and told West London Sport: ‘Pedro is definitely going as far as I understand. ‘There is a question mark with Willian but will it be something that Chelsea fans will be overly worrying about? No.
‘Christian Pulisic is coming on, Callum Hudson-Odoi is there and they won’t always play with wingers anyway because Frank plays with a 4-3-3.’
Nevin has also backed his former club to cope well with the fall-out from the coronavirus crisis, adding: ‘I have a suspicion and a feeling that Chelsea will be OK.
‘Financially they will not be too bad. If you talk about the young players, they will grow and that’s fantastic.
‘There might be something in the economics that makes it difficult to bring players in.
‘But if they can’t buy any players then they can just carry on. ‘Some clubs will have to have fire sales that you wouldn’t believe. Some clubs will be able to deal with it well and be in an amazing position. Some clubs could be in danger of folding.
‘You look at some of the clubs living on debt and you stick another massive amount of debt on top of that, which is what they are going to get, and the fundamentals are in a bad way for a lot of clubs right now.’
