That seems to be situation surrounding Jeremie Boga right now, with Chelsea and Sassuolo looking for different things when it comes to his future.
According to a report from Football-Italia, The Serie A side have been in talks with Chelsea to remove his €15m buy back clause, with Sassuolo looking to take full control over his future.
You have to think that Chelsea would be due some money if they agreed to waive that clause, but there’s no mention of a figure at this point.
