CHELSEA’S 62 million dollar reject Marc Cucurella wants to end his problems at Stamford Bridge by leaving in January.
The Spanish defender hasn’t played a single minute in the Premier League so far this year; his lone outing came in the Carabao Cup against Wimbledon.
Fed-up Cucurella, who left Brighton to join the Blues last year, will probably be brought back for tomorrow’s third-round match against Brighton at home.
But if he doesn’t get more Premier League playing time, he’s ready to hang up his boots.
The player has discussed his future with Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino.
But the Spanish full-back is still unsure about his playing time.
The defender is considering his options after having a difficult year both professionally and personally.
Cucurella, 25, is content in London but would return to Spain if it means getting more first-team time.
His home was broken into last season, which made adjusting to a new city more challenging and increased his issues on the field.
During the summer transfer window, a loan to Manchester United fell through at the last minute.
The Todd Boehly era was devastated by the failure of his move to Old Trafford, but he is hoping to change things at Stamford Bridge.
Spanish powerhouse Real Madrid is covertly keeping tabs on his condition in anticipation of a potential loan as cover for the remainder of the season.
