Chelsea learning from past mistakes with Tammy Abraham move

Abraham set to join Roma

Following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku last week, Chelsea have parted ways with another one of their forwards, with Tammy Abraham set to join AS Roma.

As per reliable Italian journalist Di Marzio, a deal has been agreed for a fee of 40 million euros, which will be paid in several installments, and will see the club break even on their transfer business this summer.

Chelsea insert buy-back clause

At 23 years old, Chelsea could be forgiven for worrying that Abraham could become another in a long line of players let go too soon, such as Romelu Lukaku, Kevin de Bruyne and Mohammed Salah.

However, the Blues have ensured that they minimise the chances that they have to shell out a sum in excess of 100 million euros, as they have reportedly inserted a buy-back clause into the deal with the Italian club.

The buy-back clause is set at 80 million euros, double what they are selling him for, and will be valid in two seasons time. While it still represents significantly more than pocket change, it remains less than the price that they have been forced to shell out on Lukaku.

Could we see Abraham return to the Bridge in future?
