We’re four games into the 2018 / 2019 Premier League season and our centre-back Gary Cahill has been conspicuous by his absence.
Cahill, who has won every domestic honour possible with Chelsea, appears to be surplus-to-requirements at the moment with Maurizio Sarri, in his preferred formation of opting for a back-four, preferring to utilise the duo of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger.
At 32-years-of-age, Cahill is at the stage of his career whereby he needs regular first-team football. Therefore, it probably comes as no surprise that Cahill, as reported by the Sun, could be looking to quit Stamford Bridge once the January transfer window closes.
Cahill, in discussing the possibility, is said to be looking for Chelsea to be proactive when it comes to a possible move, if he’s not getting regular first-team football.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’re of the opinion that if Sarri isn’t going to use Cahill on a regular basis then he should be allowed to leave, on favourable terms, considering the role he has played since joining Chelsea from Bolton Wanderers.
