Duo tussle for young Chelsea starlet

piazon.jpgChelsea fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed by the Daily Mail that one of their young players could be set for a loan spell at a Premier League rival.

Lucas Piazon is being courted by both Liverpool and also Crystal Palace who both rate the young star highly and have designs on taking him on loan for the whole of next season following a temporary spell away in La Liga at Malaga.

Chelsea and Jose Mourinho are keen to loan the player out in order for him to gain some first team experience in the top flight of English football yet are wary about allowing a rival to profit from him – hence their reluctance to loan him to Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers is hoping that his relationship with Jose Mourinho could well seal the deal for the 19-year-old Brazilian who claimed when asked about the potential of a loan move that: “It’s hard to say how often I will play or if I will play at all. We have to wait and see if any Premier League clubs will be interested in me.”

He also expressed his delight over the return of Jose Mourinho, claiming he can’t wait to work under the manager.

Will Piazon make another loan move next season, and to whom? Rate this rumour below.
