Conversation of possible incoming’s at Stamford Bridge has changed to a possible outgoing here in the Football Transfer Tavern, with sources at ESPN reckoning that Marko Marin could be set to leave Chelsea on loan.
Marin moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer from Werder Bremen, but has made just eight first team appearances due to injury and the superb form of Oscar, Eden Hazard and Juan Mata.
The 23-year-old arrived at Stamford Bridge with a big reputation, having been nicknamed ‘the German Messi’ in his homeland, although now it appears his lack of first team football is spelling trouble for his international career.
A possible loan back to Germany has been mentioned, whilst there is also interest from CSKA Moscow.
Marin’s agent Fali Ramadani admitted a loan move is a real possibility for his client and said: “I cannot name clubs, but I can say that the offers come both from western and eastern Europe.
“Marko wants more playing time, but we understand that at a major club like Chelsea there will always be serious competition for places.
“Marin feels good in London but in order to play regularly for the German national team he needs to be a first-teamer.
“We’ll have a conversation soon with the Chelsea hierarchy about all possible options for him to continue his career.”
