Perfect time for Chelsea’s Lucas Piazon leave Stamford Bridge?



There is no perfect time for Chelsea star Lucas Piazon to leave Stamford Bridge other than the upcoming January transfer market. The reason is not far-fetched — he hasn’t played a single match for the Blues so far this season and that doesn’t look like it’s going to change any time soon.

The 24-year-old is too talented to be on Chelsea’s bench on regular basis, hence, a loan or permanent move is the best way to go for the Brazilian.

As a player who can operate as both right and left winger, centre-forward and midfielder, it won’t be difficult to find a suitor for his services.

Since Sarri’s decision to hold on to his signature during the summer transfer window, the former Brazilian U-23 player has failed to be involved in any first-team action and that is negatively telling on his fitness level and his overall performances.

Is Sarri willing to let go of the Player?

This is another question that will be answered correctly only by time.

Despite making his plans for the Brazilian known to the public before the start of 2018-19 season, Maurizio Sarri has failed to keep to his promise.

12 matches into the season, Piazon hasn’t been in any matchday squad, not to talk of making the team’s bench.

Considering how hectic next month would be for Chelsea, Sarri could decide to block Piazon’s proposed move to Leeds United.

However, The winger must force a move out of Stamford Bridge in January by submitting a transfer request form to the club’s hierarchy so as to avoid sitting on the bench throughout the season.

Since he was promoted to first-team football in 2012-13 season, the 24-year-old winger has played just three matches.

He has spent some time with Malaga, Vitesse, Eintracht Frankfurt, Reading, Fulham — helping the Cottagers got a promotion to the Premier League last season
