Chelsea outcast Marko Marin wants out of the club permanently this summer, having spent the past season on loan at Europa League champions Sevilla.
TalkSPORT claim that the 25-year-old wants to move to La Liga on a permanent deal in the coming months, having found it impossible to become a first-team player at Chelsea. Marin, who impressed in the Bundesliga with the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach and Werder Bremen before earning himself a move to Stamford Bridge in 2012, has appeared 23 times in total this year for Sevilla, and despite his injuries became a fairly pivotal part of their side.
However with a triumphant return to Jose Mourinho’s first-team looking precarious given the plethora of midfield options vying for a place at Stamford Bridge, Marin has now admitted that his Spanish club want to buy him outright and, interestingly, didn’t have any bad words to say about it.
"Seville want to keep me, they want to buy me outright,” Marin said.
“Now I can only wait and see what will happen, will depend on what will decide Chelsea.”
If Marin does complete a permanent transfer to Spain he’ll unlikely be the only on-loan Blues star to do so this post-season. The likes of Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois have also been linked with transfers which would solidify their positions away from Stamford Bridge, and Mourinho has yet to rule out the sale of any of them.
