It’s certainly plausible that Chelsea could extent the loan for a further year if Milan are reluctant to pay up this summer.
The Blues usually hate adding optional buy clauses in their deals, and one would imagine it’s set prohibitively high. There are question marks about how many minutes the youngster will get anyway, so unless things go really swimmingly a purchase this year still seems unlikely at this point.
There are many fans who are unhappy about the England international going, and we agree that he’s not had the chances he’s deserved since a bright start.
Let’s hope a move to Italy is what gets his career going again.
