Former Manchester United protector, Rio Ferdinand has anticipated a mass exodus of gamers from Chelsea this summer following the sanction portioned at the club’s owner, Roman Abramovich by the United Kingdom Government.

With the Russian billionaire, who is the main source of earnings eliminated from the image at Stamford Bridge, the Blues will not be able to negotiate new contracts and deal with the futures of gamers who are seeking pay rises, or have actually come to the end of their existing deals.

Manchester City and Real Madrid are currently stating the interest for the similarity Reece James and other leading stars who City employer Pep Guardiola is said to deem long-lasting follower to Kyle Walker.

“If you take it back to the players, that unpredictability leads to stress and anxiety, fear and not understanding is always the worst case scenario and that’s where these gamers sit,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

“There will be gamers sitting there who are coming out of agreements.

“That might be a motorist for a mass exodus of players who are saying we are possibly losing our best players, we might’ve re-signed, today they’ve gone. I can’t commit to this, I want 3 or five years of certainty instead of taking a look at this thinking, what if this goes to litigation over the next couple of years, where do we sit with it all.

“There are so many questions and it makes it hard to actually want to commit to a circumstance like that.”
