While speculation has been raging over the future of head coach Antonio Conte, Emenalo has made a decision to bring his 10-year association with the club to an end.

During his time at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea won the Champions League in 2012, plus three Premier League titles, three FA Cups, the League Cup and Europa League. His influence in building the Chelsea youth team has also been recognised, leading to success for both club and the England national setup with their U-17 and U-20 teams.

"This has been a very hard decision to make, but one I believe is right for both myself and my family, and the club", Emenalo said.

The latest Premier League triumph came under current boss Conte in his first season in English football.

Conte, on the other hand, had this to say about the situation: "I am very sorry to see Michael leave Chelsea, and I would like to thank him for all his help and support since I arrived at this club".

This past summer, Chelsea lost out on several transfer targets including Romelu Lukaku.

However, as a result of his frustrations at Chelsea's transfer dealings - relations between Conte, Emenalo and director Marina Granovskaia became strained at times.

Christensen impressed in a two-year loan at Borussia Monchengladbach before returning to Chelsea in the summer where he earned a role in Antonio Conte's first-team squad, and the hope is that the likes of Abraham, Loftus-Cheek and others can do the same.

The former Nigerian footballer has done well to recruit some big names since joining in 2007, helping Chelsea to eight trophies.
