AC Milan midfielder Marco van Ginkel could be on his way back to Chelsea after the midfielder's agent revealed that the Premier League side aren't happy with the loan-deal, according to talkSPORT.

Officials at Chelsea, and manager Jose Mourinho, are unhappy with the amount of game-time the midfielder is getting, and they may choose to recall the Dutch international and send him out on loan elsewhere.

Unhappy Van Ginkel

Reports broke yesterday that Chelsea were seriously considering exercising the re-call clause due to lack of first-team football for their player, but according to Van Ginkel's agent, they haven't made a move to cancelling it just yet, though they may do in the near-future.

The 21-year-old hasn't even completed a full 90-minutes at Milan yet, featuring in just one Serie A game for just over half-an-hour, and Mourinho is ready to re-call him and send him elsewhere so that he can play regularly and develop.

Agent quotes

Van Ginkel's agent, Karel Jansen, has confirmed that officials at Stamford Bridge are discussing what they should do with the loan deal, and it's believed that they may cancel it in the near-future if things don't improve.


"The build-up in the beginning at Milan was good. Marco began the season on the bench and it was expected as he was getting used to a new club and country," Jansen told FOX Sports.

"But even after he recovered from the injury he has had very little time on the pitch. We were not happy about it and it went against all logic.

"We made it clear that this was not intention when he joined on loan. Marco did not have to go to Italy and do nothing. Look, if he wasn't very good, this treatment was understandable but a fit Van Ginkel would walk into the Milan side.

"Chelsea have not pulled the plug but they might if the current situation continues."

The Blues signed Van Ginkel from Vitesse back in 2013, and since then he has gone on to make just two first-team appearances at Stamford Bridge, hence why he was loaned out for this season.

However, that season-long loan may be cut short already, with AC Milan failing to live up to their promise of regular first-team football.
