Everton Shareholder Explains Ross Barkley to Chelsea £35m Situation
Everton shareholder Farhad Moshiri has explained why Ross Barkley’s potential move to Chelsea has broken down.
The two clubs had agreed a £35 million deal on transfer deadline day and the player even went down to London to undergo his medical.
Moshiri confirmed to Sky Sports News that the player changed his mind during his medical and called off the transfer.
Ross Barkley is currently out injured and in the final 12 months of his current deal at Everton and has previously rejected all offers of a new deal at Goodison Park.
Mr Moshiri explained that the 23-year-old wants to reconsider his position in January.
Barkley came through the youth ranks at Everton and has gone on to make 167 Premier League appearances for the Toffees to date, earning 22 caps for the England national team.
He now faces a lot of competition to break back into Ronald Koeman’s starting XI when he returns from injury as Everton have a number of options in the number 10 role.
