Chelsea could terminate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's contract after his visit to Barcelona last weekend.
Sport says Chelsea are unimpressed at Aubameyang's trip to support his former club Barcelona in El Clasico against Real Madrid on Sunday.
The Spanish giants won 2-1 thanks to a stoppage-time Franck Kessie goal and the veteran was pictured celebrating and posing in Barca's dressing room.
Everything now points towards Chelsea releasing Aubameyang from his contract a year early.
Though Aubameyang is not in direct contact with Barcelona president Joan Laporta, he has made clear his desire to return to the Catalan side - and could even take a pay cut to force the move through.
