Chelsea may not be in Europe at all next season while 2 Blues could join Man United


The Pride of London is shocked to hear that Chelsea Football Club may not be in Europe next season. The west Londoners might perhaps opt out of the Europa Conference League due to financial matters. This would surely be unwise unless a punishment is actually possible. A journalist has made a bold claim here, which PoL hope turns out not to be the case.

Meanwhile a couple of Blues players could sign for Manchester United this summer. While inter-big six transactions are rare, they do happen such as with recent CFC leaver Mason Mount. Will other homegrown talents follow the midfielder to Old Trafford? And is former Chels' manager Mauricio Pochettino on his way up north too?

Chelsea might pull out of Europa Conference League - report

Chelsea suffered relegation from the Europa League to the Europa Conference League when Man United shockingly beat close rivals Man City in the FA Cup Final. Obviously the Blues fan base was disappointed not to be in the 2024/25 UEL. However, the UECL is without a doubt better than nothing!

Although, a reporter suggests there is a possibility that Chels won't 'automatically accept the invitation' to re-enter Europe in the upcoming campaign. The Telegraph's Matt Law has declared there is a chance that Chelsea won't compete in the tournament.

This is apparently because of the Profit and Sustainability issues hanging over the Stamford Bridge team. We all know the Blues hierarchy is said to be working hard behind the scenes to comply with PSRs. If entering means there could be a future ban from competing in all European competition, Law says CFC will not do so.

Mauricio Pochettino not ruled out at Manchester United and will possibly poach pair of Blues

If Pochettino is installed as the new Red Devils boss, he would then have his eye on Conor Gallagher and Trevoh Chalobah. Gallagher's contract negotiations at the Bridge have totally stalled, it is claimed. While, similarly to his teammate, Chalobah would also represent pure profit to Todd Boehly and Co. as a homegrown talent. That is according to this report.

Though, to be fair, Erik ten Hag hasn't even been sacked yet. If he is to leave United at all. 'Poch' remains a candidate to replace the Dutchman, if stories are to be believed. Nevertheless, I would be pretty surprised to see either of the aforementioned CFC stars at Man Utd.
