Chelsea misfit After his deadline-day transfer to Paris Saint-Germain fell through, Hakim Ziyech was left “upset.”
After only making four Premier League starts this season, the Moroccan winger was eager to depart Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window.
Ziyech was well regarded when he made a £33 million transfer from Ajax in 2020, but he wanted to resurrect his career somewhere since he felt west London had played him for fools.
The 29-year-old and PSG had personal conditions in place for the player to come on loan to Paris, but the deal abruptly fell through.
Both sides anticipated reaching a final agreement, however the transfer documentation was not submitted in a timely manner.
Ziyech, who was in Paris on the final day of the transfer window getting ready to be introduced as a PSG player, will now head back to London and end the season at Chelsea.
Ziyech is “upset” about the failed transfer, according to the Daily Telegraph, and PSG is reportedly privately blaming Chelsea for failing to submit the necessary paperwork to the French authorities by the deadline.
Everton, Newcastle United, and Roma were among the teams connected to Ziyech in January as they looked to sign the Chelsea renegade.
Graham Potter, the manager of the Blues, must now work hard to reintegrate Ziyech into his starting lineup with Chelsea set to play London rivals Fulham on Friday.
Ziyech will stay at Stamford Bridge, but on the day of the transfer deadline, Chelsea approved Jorginho’s departure to Arsenal before concluding a British record deal for Enzo Fernandez.
In January, individuals such as Mykhailo Mudryk, David Datro Fofana, Noni Madueke, and Joao Felix all landed in west London.
