After the athlete rejected two different contract offers from Chelsea, the club felt obligated to take action.
Ian Maatsen’s contract with Chelsea has been extended for an additional year.
The Dutchman’s contract with Chelsea was slated to end in June, but the Blues want to keep him despite interest from other clubs in the upcoming transfer window.
According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea has recently made an improved contract offer to Maatsen on two separate occasions; however, the left-back has declined both of these offers.
His lack of playing time is supposed to have contributed to his behavior, despite the fact that the story also claims that Chelsea has already chosen to trigger the 12-month extension clause in his existing contract. His behavior is thought to have been caused by the lack of playing time.
Throughout the summer, Maatsen was the subject of interest from other clubs, but he ultimately decided to remain with Spurs in order to battle for a spot in Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
Maatsen has only played 83 minutes in a league game for Chelsea so far this season. Manchester City and Barcelona are both allegedly interested in signing the midfielder. Maatsen may be thinking about leaving Chelsea.
