Sarri has big transfer message as trio Luiz, Fabregas and RLC to be Chelsea players this January
Maurizio Sarri says there is no chance Ruben Loftus-Cheek will leave Chelsea in January’s transfer window.
Regarded as one of the finest talents currently in the Chelsea squad, Loftus-Cheek has been heavily linked with a move to the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool over the past few months as he struggles to break into the starting line-up on a regular basis.
However, despite the fact he has been urged to leave the club a few times in the January window, Sarri has dismissed the idea that he could leave next month, telling Sky Sports News: “No. I want him to stay with me, to stay with us. I think there is no chance.
The Italian boss then opened up on the futures of Cesc Fabregas and David Luiz, who have been linked with moves away to AC Milan and Barcelona, with many believing the Brazilian defender is a reliability and the Spanish playmaker is past his sell by date.
However, Sarri has claimed that it will be very hard to replace the pair if they left the club, he added: “It’s very difficult to find a centre-back for this level. And it’s very difficult to find a central midfielder technically like Fabregas. So I think they have to stay for us.”
Good news or bad news for Chelsea fans?
The news that RLC will not be leaving the club in the next transfer window will be a massive boost as the Englishman has the potential to become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League.
But Luiz is the type of defender that will cost Sarri points and is too unreliable to be the clubs long-term number one, while Fabregas is surely on his way at the end of the season as he knows he is no longer first choice at Stamford Bridge.
