The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern had forgotten that he was still on the books at Stamford Bridge…
Marco van Ginkel has had an unfortunate spell at Chelsea since he moved to the club, despite looking impressive in his early days.
A couple of long-term injury layoffs have halted his development, and over the last few seasons, he has faded into obscurity.
He has been back fit this season, though, and whilst some in the Transfer Tavern thought that he might get a chance under Antonio Conte – it would seem as though a Stamford Bridge departure is looking more likely.
PSV Sporting Director Marcel Brands has revealed that he wants to bring the midfielder to the club, saying: “‘Of course he is on our list…We need to look even if he is feasible. We have not checked with Chelsea. ”
Whilst the deal is certainly in the early stages, it would appear as though the PSV figure is very keen on getting a deal done.
With van Ginkel not in Conte’s plans at present, it would seem unlikely that anyone at Chelsea will stand in the way of the midfielder moving away – though the Blues will undoubtedly be wanting to recoup as much of their transfer fee as possible.
