Chelsea are not prepared to let 22-year-old midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek leave Stamford Bridge permanently this summer according to a report on Daily Mail.
A second consecutive season-long loan could be sanctioned for the England international this summer if incoming boss Maurizio Sarri isn’t willing to give him a key role next season.
Loftus-Cheek won’t be allowed to leave Chelsea on a permanent deal this summer because Chelsea believe he has a key role to play at the club in future.
Loftus-Cheek doesn’t want to return to Stamford Bridge next season if he would spend the campaign on the bench after impressing on loan at Crystal Palace last season.
His impressive form for Crystal Palace earned him a place in England’s World Cup squad and he has enhanced his reputation after impressive performances for England in the World Cup.
Loftus-Cheek has made 32 senior appearances so far for Chelsea since making his debut in 2014.
