Chelsea captain Gary Cahill has admitted that he may be forced to leave the club in the January transfer window.

Cahill has played a leading role in recent successes for the Blues, having won two Premier League titles, the League Cup, FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League during his time at Stamford bridge.

However, all good things have to come to an end, and it’s difficult to see where Cahill fits under Sarri. He’s yet to play a minute this season, even against PAOK on Thursday night. He has admitted he may well be forced to depart.

Cahill is quoted by the BBC heavily suggesting that his days as a Chelsea player could be numbered:

“For me to do this all season is going to be very difficult.”

“I realise sometimes football doesn’t wait for people. Sometimes you have to make those decisions to keep going and progressing.”

“Obviously the most important thing is the club, but I have to look at my situation.”

“And if I’m sat doing what I’m doing at this moment in time, I just hope that the club will respect that when it comes to the time.”

It would be sad to see Cahill go, but few would argue that it would be best for all parties to part ways. Ethan Ampadu and Andreas Christensen desperately need game-time. They’re now our priority.
