After N’golo Kante, another Chelsea flop is supposedly chasing the money route. Hakim Ziyech is in talks to join Al Nassr and potentially play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea seems to have found a way of making easy money via sales. Just a few weeks back did they sell N’golo Kante for a whopping £172 million. The Frenchman was out of contract after this season but Ziyech still has his contract until 2025 and leaving Chelsea early will benefit both clubs and obviously the winger who will be laid in money.

Throughout his three-season stint in London, the Moroccan winger has failed to replicate his impressive form from his time at Ajax. During his tenure with the Blues, he managed to score a mere six goals, none of which came this season. Moreover, it appears that Hakim Ziyech is not part of Mauricio Pochettino’s future plans, as the Argentine coach intends to trigger the release clause of Villarreal’s forward, Nicolas Jackson.

Ziyech did not really get along with any manager that came and went for Chelsea. His best personal terms were with Thomas Tuchel where he did get starts but since then it has been a bench-warming session for the former Ajax star who was signed in London for £37 million from Ajax.

He did not enjoy the trust of Graham Potter and rarely played under interim manager Frank Lampard. He also saw his loan deal at Paris Saint Germain collapse on the last day this January.

Al Nassr is rumored to be prepared to offer a substantial sum to secure Hakim Ziyech’s services, with the club president already en route to London to personally persuade the winger to make the move. Undoubtedly, this news brings joy to many Chelsea fans, if not to every single supporter.

Hakim Ziyech may be accompanied by Aubameyang as the 32-year-old looks to join The Saudi League. Chelsea are even in talks of selling Kai Havertz to Arsenal and Mason Mount to Manchester United as they look to restructure their whole squad and start afresh under Premier League’s expert Mauricio Pochettino.
