Reports confirm that the luxury Rolls-Royce owned by Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech has been involved in a collision in Amsterdam. The incident occurred when Ziyech’s Mansory Rolls-Royce Cullinan, valued at approximately £360,000, mounted a kerb and collided with a bicycle rack, resulting in significant damage. While it is not suggested that Ziyech was present in the vehicle at the time, the driver behind the wheel was reportedly apprehended by authorities.
De Telegraaf said the collision occurred between Ziyech’s car and a Volkswagen Polo at a bustling junction on July 31. Photographs from the scene show the expensive car atop the bicycle rack in the heart of the Dutch capital.
This incident adds to Ziyech’s recent challenges as he seeks an exit from Chelsea during this summer transfer window. In June, a proposed transfer to Saudi Arabia faltered, marking another setback in his career.
Previously, the Chelsea star was on the verge of an £8 million move to join Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr. Ziyech’s tenure at Stamford Bridge has seen him struggle to acclimate to the demands of the Premier League since his £33 million transfer from Ajax in 2020. With Todd Boehly and Mauricio Pochettino orchestrating a restructuring of the squad, Ziyech is anticipated to part ways with the Blues, seeking new opportunities.
Among his peers, Kalidou Koulibaly, N’Golo Kante, and Edouard Mendy have all secured moves to the Middle East. Prominent figures such as Karim Benzema and Ruben Neves have also ventured in that direction.
This marks the second occasion within six months that Ziyech’s attempts to depart from Chelsea have met with challenges.
