Chelsea’s third choice goalkeeper Willy Caballero will leave the club at the end of his contract in June.

The 39-year-old Argentine has been with the club since signing from Manchester City in 2017, and he ended making 38 appearances and kept 14 clean sheets.

Caballero would be proud to have won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup with Chelsea before his departure.

This season, Caballero found himself as third choice goalkeeper following the signing of Edouard Mendy from Rennes.

Chelsea released a statement to confirm his exit, thus: “Willy Caballero will depart Stamford Bridge after four years with Chelsea when his contract expires at the end of this month.”

Also, Chelsea has confirmed that goalkeeper Jamal Blackman will leave the club at the end of his contract. Blackman’s contract ends in June, and he has been at the club since 12.

Now 27, Blackman will aim to secure his future in another club after several loan deals, and will also be leaving at the end of June.

Blackman did not make a single senior appearance for Chelsea, but was part of the Blues squad which travelled to Munich in 2012 for our maiden Champions League triumph.

Regarding the exit of the two goalkeepers, the club wished them well via a statement: “Everyone at the club thanks Willy and Jamal for their work at Chelsea and wishes them well for the future.”
