Marin to move
The future of forgotten Chelsea man Marko Marin looks set to be decided tomorrow, with it having been confirmed that he is close to joining Turkish side Trabzonspor.
The Super Lig club’s sporting director, Suleyman Hurman revealed that Marin had touched down in the city and will undergo a medical shortly before being confirmed as a player tomorrow.
“He will arrive in Trabzon tonight and undergo a medical tomorrow before completing his transfer”, Hurma confirmed to LigTV.
It will mark the end of a rough Stamford Bridge career for the midfielder, one that has seen him farmed out to no less than three different clubs on loan.
Stones and Martinez
In more positive news John Stones has told Roberto Martinez that he wants to move to Chelsea this summer if possible.
At least that’s according to The Times, who say that the England international could submit a formal transfer request if Martinez refuses to accept Jose Mourinho’s next bid of £40million. Translation: A deal looks on the cards.
Cuadrado deal on
Last but not least Juan Cuadrado is set to leave Chelsea, having touched down in Italy ahead of a medical with Juventus.
The Colombia international will be loaned to the Turin giants for the season. It remains to be seen if he’ll ever play for the Blues again.
