The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been disappointed with the lack of action that Kurt Zouma has had this season…
Having suffered an injury last year, the defender missed the best part of a year of action – with the issue coming at a crucial point in his development. Having just broken into the Chelsea first team on a regular basis, he was forced out of action for such a long period of time – and with Conte now at the helm, it has had a big impact on his career.
Indeed, he hasn’t really been given much of a chance to prove himself since returning to the fold, though much of that is to do with how well the Chelsea defence has done in his absence.
However, inevitably, given his lack of game time – fans in the pub have begun to speculate over whether he could look to leave the club this summer. One Man Utd fan has even suggested that he should move to Old Trafford, linking up with former Blues boss Jose Mourinho.
This is seemingly a move that isn’t a popular one amongst many fans, though, with our landlord recently deciding to poll fans on that very matter. Questioning them on whether a move to Man Utd would be good for Zouma – 50% of fans responded saying that it would be, whilst 50% think that he would be better off at Stamford Bridge.
Our landlord thinks that whilst a permanent move might not be the best course of action, a loan may benefit Zouma and allow him to get back to his best.
