According to Chelsea Women, two important players who are scheduled to leave the team at the conclusion of the current season will leave the team without them.

Two pillars of Chelsea are lost in the summer purge.

Magdalena Eriksson, the team’s current captain, has declared her intention to leave the organization at the conclusion of the current campaign.
Pernille Harder, a Danish striker who joined the Blues in the summer of 2020, will take her place.

When Eriksson’s contract expires at the end of the current season, Chelsea teased an emotional farewell to the Swedish defender. Eriksson’s departure was the first to be made official.

In their statement, the club described Eriksson as “a leader on the pitch” and “one of the greats to have pulled on the shirt.” 

Chelsea manager, Emma Hayes, also said about the four-time FAWSL champion, “There are not enough words to describe the impact Magda has had, not just on this football club but on me. She has been a wonderful leader, someone who has helped drive the team and it’s standards to the levels that we’re at.

“Chelsea will always be her club, it will always be her home. She will forever remain a legend of this football club. She goes with my blessing and I wish her the best for her future.”

Harder follows Eriksson out of the Blues this summer

Chelsea also revealed that Eriksson’s partner, striker Harder, will follow her out of the club when her contract expires, as Eriksson’s departure from the team was already a given.

The departure of Harder and Eriksson together was anticipated because Harder has been with the club since 2020 and partially relocated to be with them.

“Pernille is one of the best attacking players in the world, and you see all of them qualities day in and day out,” Emma Hayes said in reference to Harder’s departure. She has always been incredibly motivated to succeed, rise to the top, and support the team in winning championships. ” .

Although it is unknown where either of them will play football next season, it is likely that after leaving the Blues, they will end up playing for the same team once more.
