Premier League outfit Chelsea FC have ruled out the option of exercising a €15 buy-back clause they included in the sale of the player to Sassuolo in 2018.
The North Londoners confirmed this Monday that they won’t go back for the services of Academy quenching media speculations about a return to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s position means Sassuolo who have contracted the forward till the summer of 2022 have the powers to decide on the player’s future.
The Serie A club have expressed their desire to keep the player as long as possible despite interest from Barcelona, Napoli amongst others.
Boga has had an amazing stay at Sassuolo registering 11 goals from 49 games, certainly justifying the club’s faith in him.
The president of the Italian club has openly proclaimed his love for the Ex-Rennes man. Giovanni Carnevali intends to keep his player.
“He has progressed enormously. We have to thank our coach Roberto De Zerbi, who over the past year has managed to get him to the top level”, the president told Rai Due.
Boga has had an impressive season scoring eight goals and assisting four from 25 Serie A appearances.
The president acknowledged the fact that multiple clubs are after the players signature but categorically declared the player is staying put.
“Many clubs want him, but we intend to keep him. I think Boga will still be wearing Sassuolo’s jersey next season” president Giovanni stated.
The Ivorian international joined Sassuolo last summer from Chelsea with the Blues holding a buy-back clause of £15million in his contract with the Serie A club.
The 23-year-old former French youth international came through the ranks at Chelsea after joining them in 2009 as a-12-year old.
The native of Marseille break into Chelsea’s first team in 2015 and since then he has had loan spells with Rennes, Granada and Birmingham before making a permanent switch to Sassuolo in 2018.
The ex-FC Granada forward is attached to the club till the summer of 2022 but if he keeps the same performance Sassuolo will struggle to keep him till then.
