Koeman: Barkley Rejects Chelsea
Everton coach Ronald Koeman admitted that Ross Barkley did reject offers proposed by the Chelsea.
The England midfielder had almost moved to Stamford Bridge on the last day of the summer transfer window, but canceled the intention, and decided to stay at Goodison Park.
“Of course, the last day of yesterday was a strange day, but it did not just happen to Everton, but almost to every club in the Premier League,” the coach told reporters.
“Ross came to see me on Tuesday, and he explained to me what the reason he refused Chelsea. But the content of our conversation is personal. ”
“He is open with the opportunity to move to another club, and I heard from the club’s board of directors, if Chelsea has reached an agreement with Everton.”
“But in the end, the decision remains in the hands of the players, and that’s what happened at the time.”
