Selling Conor Gallagher could be a mistake

Meanwhile, Gallagher has been a key player for the Blues this season and he has captained them multiple times as well. Selling him could prove to be a mistake for the Blues.

Gallagher has established himself as a reliable Premier League performer and he is unlikely to have any shortage of suitors. He could develop into a top-class central midfielder and Chelsea will regret their decision to let him leave.

Vitinha has five goals and three assists to his name across all competitions this season and he has a contract with PSG until the summer of 2027. The French outfit are under no pressure to sell him in the summer and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can convince them with a lucrative proposal.
