According to rumors, Chelsea may need to force Ruben Loftus-Cheek out of the club this summer.
According to the Evening Standard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is hesitant to leave Chelsea after the season, as he is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2024.
The Blues are expected to sell the 27-year-old during the summer transfer window. However, the midfielder’s weekly wage of £150,000 is said to be a potential stumbling block for interested buyers.
According to the report, Chelsea’s owners are desperate to sell Loftus-Cheek in the next window.
There’s not much stopping Loftus-Cheek from finishing his deal, but can Chelsea find him a suitable future club?
The Englishman, in our opinion, has to move on. He’s a sellable asset on this bloated team, thus we stand to gain a lot by getting him off the books.
Interestingly, Italian powerhouses AC Milan and Inter Milan are both said to be fans of Loftus-Cheek.
This week, Calciomeracto reported that AC Milan may be considering a move for Loftus-Cheek.
Meanwhile, Gazzetta reported last month that Inter Milan likes Loftus-Cheek and would be willing to do a deal with Chelsea this summer.
We’ve never seen Loftus-Cheek hit the heights that many anticipated when he was going through Chelsea’s system.
We don’t rule out the prospect of an England recall for him if he can start playing consistently and in good form for a new club.
Unfortunately, things have become stale in West London, and he desperately needs a fresh start.
