Michael Essien looks set to leave Chelsea in this current transfer window after the Blues completed the signing of Nemanja Matic from Benfica, reports The Express

Jose Mourinho re-signed the midfielder for Chelsea this past week for £21 million and it now appears that Ghanaian star Essien will leave the club. 

Essien only arrived back at Stamford Bridge in the summer having previously been shipped out on loan to Spanish giants Real Madrid. 

However Essien has struggled to make an impact under Mourinho in this campaign and his time in the Premier League looks to be coming to an end. 

The Chelsea ace is wanted by Italian outfit AC Milan and it has been reported that Clarence Seedorf is ready to make the 31-year-old his first signing at the San Siro. 

With Essien heading out the door, it remains to be seen as to whether Matic will make his debut against Premier League champions Manchester United on Sunday.
