Marko Marin set to join Anderlecht on loan

Marko Marin is set to complete a loan move to Belgian champions Anderlecht later today, according to Kristof Terreur. 

Terreur - a Belgian journalist - has suggested that the deal will be completed sooner rather than later, as Marin looks set for another temporary spell away from Stamford Bridge. 

There's no doubt about it, Marin has endured a tricky time on English soil, having failed to prove his credentials in England's elite division since moving from German outfit Werder Bremen in 2012. 

In fact, over the course of the past couple of years, the 25-year-old has spent time at the likes of Sevilla and Fiorentina, but it now appears that he's set for a stint in Belgium's elite division. 

On the move...again 

Marin, then, will now be hoping to prove his credentials at another club, before potentially heading back to the Bridge at the end of the season. 

However, even if Marin does return to the Chelsea setup, it certainly appears that he will have his work cut out in order to breakthrough into the first-team at the club. 

An attacking midfielder by trade, Marin would seemingly be desperate to work under Mourinho, but with so many top names already at the club, his long term future in England appears to be in some doubt. 

Chelsea options 

In the No. 10 role - Marin's favoured position - Mourinho has the likes of Oscar and Cesc Fabregas starring for his side, while the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Co. continue to impress down the flanks. 

In truth, there may well come a point when the midfield ace looks to move away from the club on a permanent basis, but for now he will be hoping to help Anderlecht secure another Pro League title. 

Chelsea, meanwhile, will turn their attentions to tonight's Capital One Cup showdown with rivals Liverpool. Mourinho's side will be desperate to secure a positive result at Anfield before heading to the Bridge for the second leg.
