Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is ready to sell striker Demba Ba because of Financial Fair Play regulations.
According to The Daily Star, the Blues are in talks with turkish outfit Besiktas over the potential departure of the forward.
And now it appears that the Chelsea owner is ready to let him depart Stamford Bridge, with Atletico Madrid hitman Diego Costa set to sign for the club in the near future.
Ba struggled to hold down a first team place at Chelsea last season, and looked set to leave the club in the January transfer window.
However, after staying on at the Bridge, the striker scored key goals in the Champions League and Premier League against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool.
It now appears, though, that his time at the club is coming to an end as Abramovich looks to receive a fee for the 29-year-old.
Chelsea fans will certainly be excited about the future, with the Costa signing expected imminently. The Blues will be hoping that the Spanish international scores the goals to land them the Premier League title next term.
The club may have to, however, battle for league success without former Newcastle United striker Ba. The striker's next challenge looks set to be in Turkey, where he will be desperate to prove his worth once again.
