Although he played in the FA Cup tie against MK Dons, Gary Cahill’s future at Chelsea FC seems to be uncertain, having lost his place in the regular starting lineup.
After an initial phase of the season when captain John Terry was injured, Gary Cahill lost his spot on the starting XI with the emergence of Kurt Zouma as one of the top centre-backs in the club.
However, Cahill’s main concern with warming the bench for the club is that he does not want to end up losing his spot in the England national team for the Euro 2016. Although the England international recently signed a four-year-deal with Chelsea FC, Cahill wants a way out of the West London club, according to the Daily Express.
Cahill could be a cheap and quality acquisition
While Transfermarkt rates Cahill at around £15 million, clubs could get him at a much cheaper rate than one would normally expect. Cahill’s displeasure at not being picked regularly in the starting XI is public knowledge, and rival clubs could use this to acquire him at a price lower than the one cited. Also, the fact that the England international is now 30 years old, means that his price may be lowered further.
Could there be a future at Chelsea for Cahill?
The Blues’ recent signing of defender Matt Miazga from MLS side New York Red Bulls seems to suggest that Cahill’s time at Chelsea FC might be truly over. However, with John Terry fast approaching the end of his career at the age of 35, Cahill could see himself taking over as a more regular contender for the Chelsea FC captain’s spot on the starting XI.
