Brazilian Piazon announces Chelsea deal is signed and sealed, but then shocks fans!
Please WATCH VIDEO TO FIND OUT:
Lucas Piazon has announced his time at Chelsea is ‘already over’ despite signing a contract extension during the summer.
Chelsea have been unable to sign any players over the summer transfer window, meaning Frank Lampard has had to turn to some of the younger players and fringe players at the club to make up the numbers at the club this season.
Piazon, who joined Chelsea in 2011 as one of the world’s most promising talents, was given the opportunity to prove himself to Lampard during the summer window, as the club legend was looking at a number of players, but the Brazilian joined Portuguese side Rio Ave earlier this month after failing to impress the boss, despite the fact he signed a new deal with the club until 2021.
But after admitting that a deal had been agreed he has admitted that his time at Chelsea may be over, telling the Metro website: ‘I’m 25, I’ve been on loan several times. I’ve been at Chelsea since 2011, I’ve been on loan almost all over Europe.
‘I’m tired of playing here and there, I need a place where I can feel at home.
‘I want to know that in July I will return to the same place, to the same house.
‘I’d have a good season on loan, but I’d come back and was soon loaned again.
‘There was no point in going out on loan, playing well, coming back, not being used and being loaned again.
‘There comes a time in your career that makes no sense anymore. ‘By the way, I said exactly that three years ago and it didn’t go so well at Chelsea, it generated some discomfort.’
Although Piazon is a very gifted player, he has never been given the chance to prove himself at Chelsea and leaving the club on a permanent basis may be the best thing for his career in the long-run.
There comes a time when he needs to cut ties with Chelsea, and that should be at the end of the season or he could see his career pass him by more than it has.
