“Ross Barkley has left Chelsea by mutual consent and becomes a free agent,” Chelsea wrote in a statement on Monday.

The former Toffees star’s last game for the Blues came in May, in which he scored a header to secure the three points against Watford.

Barkley was also instrumental in Chelsea’s victory in the Europa League and their run to the 2020 FA Cup final, scoring against Liverpool and Leicester, and winning a winners’ medal in 2018 in the same competition.


In total, the midfielder scored 12 goals in 100 appearances during his time at Stamford Bridge.
