Joe Cole cautions Chelsea that if they approve the January transfer, they’ll repeat Man City’s mistake.

Chelsea has spent over £1 billion on talent since Todd Boehly took over as chair in May 2022, and they may sell one of Mauricio Pochettino’s star players this month.


As uncertainty surrounds Conor Gallagher’s future, Joe Cole has pleaded with Chelsea not to let the midfield player go this month.


Gallagher, 23, is wanted by Tottenham because of his strong performance at Stamford Bridge. This season, the England international has started all but one of their Premier League games and is leading the squad in Reece James and Ben Chilwell’s absence due to injuries.


Mauricio Pochettino has Gallagher on his team, but that may not be enough to hold onto him. The Premier League’s financial regulations may require Chelsea to balance the books this month, and they may profit handsomely from Gallagher.


The talented Epsom native, who is currently valued at £60 million, attended Chelsea’s academy. Additionally, he has begun the last 18 months of his contract. However, Blues great Cole feels that Gallagher’s previous employers ought to hold onto him through the summer at the latest.


In this manner, they can negotiate a new long-term contract with Gallagher’s representatives for the next six months. Cole wants Chelsea to avoid making the same error that Manchester City committed when Cole Palmer left four and a half months ago.


Palmer, 21, was sold by City to Chelsea on deadline day for a mere £42.5 million. With nine goals and seven assists in 23 Blues appearances, he is possibly the best signing of Todd Boehly’s Stamford Bridge tenure, which began in May 2022.


Following Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Fulham at home on Saturday, Cole said “You’ve got to credit the boys for getting it over the line.” “Gallagher is excellent once more. He needs to wear a Chelsea shirt to begin February. I’m incredibly happy for Pochettino.


Cole went on to talk about Palmer’s impact after he scored the winning goal on Saturday. “I think City made a mistake on this occasion, but they don’t make mistakes,” he continued. You wish to visit and observe him. Cole Palmer will be a crucial member of this team.

Recently, Pochettino was questioned concerning Gallagher’s future at Stamford Bridge. “It’s difficult for any coach to talk; the player and the club make that decision,” he stated.


“As the team’s coach, I strive to make the best decision for our performance. He’s playing great right now, which is great for the team. He is participating since he deserves it. Regarding the future, it all depends on the player’s and the club’s decisions.


“In my past experiences at other clubs, I’ve tried to offer the club my best judgment and guidance. As a manager, I enjoy collaborating with the owners and the sporting director. It’s about debating and evaluating the situation before deciding what’s best for the club.”
