Former Chelsea winger Jeremie Boga has been given the condition for his exit from Italian football outfit Sassuolo this summer. The Sassuolo player was given the condition by club director Giovanni Carnevali. Carnevali laid down the gauntlets to Boga in his interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Boga has taken Italian football by storm in the past few seasons and the Ivorian international winger is one of the shinning lights at Sassuolo. He didn’t make the grades while he was in the Premier League with Chelsea as he struggled for playing time prompting him to move to Sassuolo permanently after three loan spells away from Stamford Bridge. Sassuolo signed him from Chelsea after the player impressed in the Italian football top flight.

Ex-Blues player Boga angered Sassuolo officials when he granted an interview to French newspaper L’Equipe earlier this week. Boga told L’Equipe on Friday that the time is right for him to move away from Mapei Stadium, the home of Italian football side Sassuolo.

His interview didn’t go down well with club officials as pointed out earlier and the player was fined by the club. It appears like Sassuolo officials were not aware that the player granted an interview like that hence the fine from the club. The interview also prompted Carnevali to speak about the player in the press. According to him, Boga won’t leave the Sassuolo in the summer unless the Italian football team is paid at least €40m for his transfer.

Sassuolo signed the 24-year-old Boga from Chelsea three years ago for €10m and the Blues don’t have a buyback option for the player. He has a year left on his current deal at his club. The Ivorian has an attacking return of four goals and two assists in 26 league games this term.
