Split loyalties for Romeu

Published Add your comment

Chelsea's Spanish midfielder Oriol Romeu could return to his homeland in 2013, according to his agent.

Romeu joined the Blues from Barcelona in the summer and has forged a place as the preferred defensive midfielder ahead of John Obi Mikel. The 20-year-old's future at Stamford Bridge has already been questioned with reports claiming Barcelona have a buy-back option at the end of this season, as well as in the summer of 2013.

"We need to know if he'll keep developing at Chelsea and playing. Maybe it will be more convenient to stay for another year and then return in 2013," his agent Javier Magico Diaz said.
