Ex-Blues star sends Chelsea message over the very exciting midfielder Billy Gilmour, fans will love this!
Ex-Blues defender Frank Sinclair has declared that Billy Gilmour has a great future at Chelsea.
There has been so much speculation in the media over the past few days about the kind of players that could come in during the summer window, and players that could pack their bags and leave Stamford Bridge as they are no longer needed, or they are in high-demand.
And over the past few weeks, there is one player that has been dominating all the headlines for the Blues and that is the brilliantly gifted Gilmour, who has impressed under Frank Lampard and has even been compared to the club record-goalscorer.
The 18-year old midfielder once again stole the show in the 4-0 win against Everton, which eared him his second Man of the match award in as many games following the 2-0 win against Liverpool, and his performances have not gone unnoticed by big clubs, and the management staff at Stamford Bridge.
But while it remains to be seen whether the 18-year-old midfielder will continue to be handed regular opportunities when football eventually resumes, Sinclair has talked up the chances of the Scottish talent becoming a permanent fixture in the starting lineup, he told GentingBet: “Billy Gilmour has got what it takes to make it at Chelsea and he’s got an incredible future at the club – I’d put him up there as being a real Chelsea great if he gets the opportunity to play regular football for Chelsea.
“Before he even arrived in the first team this season, I was well aware of how highly he was rated after listening to what was coming out from the academy coaches on their analysis of the player. Everyone is fully aware as to how good he has been since he joined the football club.”
Frank spent eight years at the Blues between 1990 and 1998, making a total of 218 appearances across all competitions.
Yes he only signed a new contract just before Christmas, but he will surely become a first-team regular at the club for the rest of the season and then next year, and that means he should be getting the kind of deal that the big stars get.
A nice five-year deal worth around £60-80,000-a-week should end all speculation and ensure that those big clubs cant tempt him away, and will keep him happy enough to just focus on his career at Chelsea.
