Chelsea’s outcast young star Lucas Piazon has said that he is willing to leave Chelsea on a permanent basis, having never been granted a proper opportunity to impress at the club since his £10 million arrival from Sao Paulo in 2011, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Brazilian winger has been so underused that he has played only one Premier League game for the west London side in his time at the club.
Loan spells away from the club have also failed to lead to an improvement in circumstances for the player, with time at Malaga, Vitesse Arnehm and Eintracht Frankfurt not leading to any further opportunities.
With so many talents ahead of him in the first team, it seems that Piazon is now willing to consider a permanent future away from Chelsea.
He said: “I wish to play at Chelsea. But football is a surprise and everything can change quickly.
“I’m only 20 and anything can happen. If everything fits, I could stay in Frankfurt.
“Chelsea has so many very good players and currently it is difficult for me to find a place.”
“Next week I pull out of the hotel and move into my apartment and tomorrow my language course begins. Then I learn German.
“I think it’s normal (to go on loan). Chelsea has so many very good players and it would currently be difficult for me to find a place. Here I can play and gain experience.”
Chelsea have started off the new season in exceptional style, winning all three of their opening Premier League games and cementing their position as early favourites.
The agent of Joel Campbell has revealed that the 22 year old Arsenal starlet wanted to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer after shining for Costa Rica at the summer’s World Cup, as reported by the Daily Express.
There were considerable links in English newspapers suggesting that Campbell was on the cusp of moving away from north London this summer, having failed to make an impact since joining the club several years ago as a youngster.
The club he was most heavily linked to was Benfica, who looked to capitalise on Arsene Wenger’s doubts and secure a season long loan spell.
His agent, Joaquim Bata, has revealed that Fiorentina were the only side to make a formal bid for the Costa Rican international this summer, although AC Milan also made an enquiry.
He said: “I received many phone calls from Italy.
“Joel really likes Milan and Roma, so he wanted a call from either of those two clubs. There was contact with the Rossoneri, while the Giallorossi thought of him as an alternative to Destro in case of a sale.
“The only club that really made an offer in Italy was Fiorentina, even if at the end of the day they didn’t agree terms.”
Campbell starred for Olympiacos while on loan at the Greek side last season, scoring a famous goal against Manchester United in the Champions League.
Manchester United could replace Louis van Gaal with German manager Jurgen Klopp in 2018, with his current side, Borussia Dortmund, expecting to face a parting of the ways with the talented young manager at the end of his tenth season in charge of the side, as reported by The Metro.
With a limitation on what can be achieved at Dortmund, the German club are already bracing for Klopp’s departure when his current contract expires at the end of 2018.
Despite interest from many of the top clubs in Europe, Klopp is thought to favour a move to Old Trafford, and with Van Gaal only ever expected to be a short term solution to a problem, Klopp would be considered the ideal appointment.
It could still be difficult to get Klopp to leave Dortmund, with the manager repeatedly insisting that he has no interest in moving elsewhere any time soon. He was thought to be one of Man Utd’s targets prior to Van Gaal’s appointment this summer.
