Chelsea complete first sale of summer transfer window as forgotten £37m star moves to Euro giants..ĊONTINUE.THE FULL R£ĄÐING.

Now Fabrizio Romano claims that they have agreed the permanent exit of Hakim Ziyech.

The Moroccan winger, 31, joined Galatasaray on a season long loan last summer.

And he has shone for Gala in the top-flight, scoring six times in 16 outings.

Ziyech and his Galatasaray team-mates are aiming to complete the double over the next few weeks.

They are currently top of the Turkish Super Lig, six points clear of second-placed Fenerbahce.

There are three games left of the season, including a crucial clash between the top two on May 19.

Galatasaray were also declared Turkish Super Cup winners earlier this season after Fenerbahce forfeited the clash.

Their rivals fielded an U19 team and then walked off the pitch after two minutes.…Continue The Full Reading.>’.
