Spanish midfielder Oriol Romeu has revealed he wants to make a summer move back to Chelsea.
Romeu, who is currently on loan at Stuttgart, has been chopped and changed since signing for the Blues in 2011.
But he’s admitted he hasn’t given up on a future with the club and has been inspired by Nemanja Matic’s impressive campaign.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “Last summer, I was training with the team in pre-season. Then the club explained that they were looking at a loan deal. They said they believe in me but it was best for my development this season to play regularly.
“They said they see me as part of their future. I look at Nemanja Matic, for example, the way he went away for a while and then came back and I’d love to replicate that. I still dream of making it properly at Chelsea.
“I still do not know what will happen next season – of course I would love to return to Chelsea but I also want to be playing football.”
