News of a Chelsea outgoing has reached us in the Football Transfer Tavern, courtesy of Hannah Duncan of Metro.
German winger Marko Marin has agreed to join Spanish club Sevilla on a season long loan, after failing to impress during his debut season at Stamford Bridge.
Marin was a £7 million signing from Werder Bremen last summer, and joined the club dubbed with the nickname – the ‘German Messi’.
However the 24-year-old struggled for form and fitness, and found first team opportunities hard to come by under both Roberto Di Matteo and then Rafael Benitez.
The Blues have an array of attacking talent already in that department, with Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar proving regular starters, whilst Victor Moses proved more of a threat when given his opportunity from the bench.
Chances for Marin may have proved even harder to come by this season, with possible new signings on the horizon as well as the return of winger Kevin de Bruyne, who enjoyed a successful season long loan at Werder Bremen last season.
Therefore Jose Mourinho has decided it’s best to allow the winger, who managed just one goal for Chelsea last season, to enjoy some regular playing time in La Liga at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
A statement on the Chelsea website read: “Chelsea Football Club and Sevilla Fútbol Club have reached an agreement for the season-long loan of Marko Marin, subject to the completion of legal documentation and a medical.”
Is this a good move for all parties involved? Let us know your thoughts below.
