Chelsea defender, Gary Cahill is considering his future at the Stamford Bridge and fears he might lose his place in the England’s squad for Euro 2016. However, reports suggest, Blues won’t let Cahill leave.
With the looming arrival of Matt Miazga, Cahill has started to weighing his options and chances available. Having been replaced by Kurt Zouma in Chelsea line-up under Guus Hiddink, the England international is worried about his chances to represent his country in Euro this summer.
He faces competition with Chris Smalling, John Stones and Phil Jagielka, for a place in the England squad, and missing out on game-time won’t play in Cahill’s favour.
However, according to Guardian, the defender won’t be allowed to leave despite Miazga joining from the New York Red Bulls. Cahill is currently a vice-captain for England but if he continues to spend most of his time on the bench, there is a chance he might lose his place in England’s defence to Stones, Jagielka and Smalling who are regular starters for their club.
The reason Chelsea are reluctant to part ways with the 30-year-old is, that they are not bringing Miazga as a replacement but as an option. This however, does not paint a pretty picture for Cahill, as it does make him a second or third choice for representing the Blues.
Chelsea are hoping to sign the United States international by Deadline Day. He is reported to cost them around £2m. The defender, is hoping to travel to London in the coming days to undergo a medical. The deal will be officially announced once all the paperwork is finalised.
Chelsea are currently 13th in the league with 28 points. They will probably lose out on Champions League spot this season. They are currently looking to strengthen the squad, but their main concern lies in finding the right manager, as Guus Hiddink is only managing till the end of the season.
They are looking to get Pep Guardiola who will head to the Premier League after serving his final season at Bayern, but Manchester City might snatch Guardiola from Chelsea’s grasp.
