Chelsea fans think that Sarri’s decision on Loftus-Cheek could lead to a departure

It’s been a whirlwind year for Ruben Loftus-Cheek. After spending a few years treading water at Chelsea, the Englishman was given the chance to stretch his wings at Crystal Palace, and he certainly took his chance. The Englishman quickly transformed into one of the Premier League’s brightest young talents, becoming the focal point of the Palace attack within a matter of weeks at Selhurst Park.

Impressing with his energy, dribbling and technical ability, Loftus-Cheek showed just why Chelsea rate him so highly. That form eventually led to a World Cup call-up with England, and whilst he wasn’t a regular under Gareth Southgate, he did pick up a couple of starts over in Russia.

Now, he’s back in the Chelsea first team squad – but for how long? Well, according to the Sun, he’s seeking clarification on his first-team future – and this comes after he was left out of Chelsea’s squad to face Arsenal on Saturday.

Of course, Loftus-Cheek got a few minutes against Huddersfield on the opening day of the season, and despite looking decent, Maurizio Sarri deemed it suitable to promote Mateo Kovacic in his place instead.

Rightly or wrongly, that’s led a few of the Chelsea fans on Twitter to consider his future. They aren’t sure that the Englishman will sit around and wait for his chance, and many are expecting him to depart Chelsea sooner, rather than later.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
