Lucas Piazon has recently completed his loan move from Chelsea to Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.
The young Brazilian starlet spent the entire last season on loan in the Eredivisie, playing for Vitesse Arnhem alongside fellow Chelsea players Christian Atsu and Gael Kakuta.
Despite having an impressive season with Vitesse, Piazon is still not in Mourinho's plans, and the Special One is still prioritising first-team experience for the youngster. Piazon scored 11 goals and created eight others in 29 league appearances last season, and although Vitesse finished sixth, Piazon was still crucial during the entire course of the season.
As well as prioritising first-team experience, Mourinho seemingly has no space for Piazon at the moment, with World Cup winner Andre Schürrle, Willian, Eden Hazard and even Oscar all available. Chelsea are favouring youth at the moment and there is little doubt Piazon will become an important asset to the Blues, however he may have to wait just a little more to get his chance to shine at the Bridge.
Eintracht Frankfurt's sporting director Bruno Hubner told Frankfurt's official website:
“We are glad to be able to reach an agreement after lengthy but very fair negotiations with Chelsea. Piazon will strengthen us in the coming season. He has played on the left wing, he can play on the right and be used as an attacking midfielder.”
Do you think Mourinho made the right decision in letting Piazon go on loan for another season? Let us know!
