The bulk of goalscoring ability and responsibility of leading the line for Chelsea had fallen on the shoulders of 22-year-old Tammy Abraham this season, and it’s safe to say he has exceeded everyone’s expectations, so much so that some fans even consider him to breakaway in the England squad.
Amid the recent transfer ban imposed on Chelsea, the youth system was finally called into action as many Chelsea youngsters were given the chance to prove themselves with the first team and safe to say, many of these kids have made the most out of their opportunity.
Blues have acted fast and have tied Reece James, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Billy Gilmour all for long term contracts at the club.
Even Hudson-Odoi who was rumoured to take his talents at Bayern this summer also committed his future at the club and is now reportedly earning £180,000-a-week.
But the same hasn’t happened with Tammy Abraham yet.
The future is currently uncertain for the Chelsea striker with reports suggesting that huge expectations in weekly salary continues to be a roadblock in the club agreeing a new deal with the striker.
The rumour spread far and wide among the Chelsea fans and needless to say they weren’t impressed, some were even outraged accusing him of even holding the club at ransom.
Much to the relief of the Chelsea fans though, Tammy Abraham himself came out on social media today to dismiss the ridiculous accusation put on him.
On an Instagram post stating that the allegations regarding the salary of the Chelsea no. 9 were a fake, Abraham commented “Finally some real news”.
Rubbish rumors aside and with two years left on his contract, Chelsea fans can again look forward towards a fruitful relationship with the striker when the football resumes again.
