Chelsea’s Chelsea-bound target has a release clause of £43.6m valid after this season: With the international break, plenty of developments are happening at Stamford Bridge. Yesterday, Todd Boehly suffered a blow as Christophe Freund confirmed he will stay with RB Salzburg. The Blues were keen on Freund’s data-based approach to recruitment, but as a result they must now look elsewhere for someone to fill the vacancy.

Denis Zakaria makes the decision to join Chelsea on loan as a way of continuing to develop as he feels that the Premier League will fit his play style. It has been frustrating for him however, and he has admitted that working with Thomas Tuchel was a motivator for joining the five time Champions League winners.

The release clause for Ousmane Dembele is £43.6 million, which allows him to leave Barcelona in 2019. Thanks to the new release clause, Chelsea may now have their chance of signing Ousmane Dembele next summer, after narrowly missing out on the Frenchman during the transfer window.

Dembele, who plays as a winger in Barcelona but is also known for his powerful shot and defensive qualities, signed a two-year extension with the Catalan club in July to put an end to rumours that he would leave on a free transfer at the end of the current season. That deal meant that Chelsea, Dynamo Moscow and Juventus were all denied the chance to sign him when his contract expired in June.

When the Frenchman’s contract ends in 2019, he’ll be free to sign with another team. But by then, that release clause is valid again.

Dembele, who plays for Barcelona, was signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017 for a deal that rose to something around $135.5m. His career in Spain has been littered with injuries, but he has always done well when playing games.

After underwhelming seasons in the past, the winger has done exceptionally well this season. He has scored twice and assisted once in six league appearances so far.

Dembele is an exceptional winger with pace, finishing power, decision making and physical strength against defenders. He has versatility with his position being wide on the left or playing in a central role as number nine.

Though Chelsea have quality wingers in their squad, they do not have anyone who has the X-factor-type quality that the player’s release clause can bring. A good idea would be to sign this player at his release clause next summer.
