Chelsea defender wants to leave in January

Marc Cucurella news

Cucurella eyes January Chelsea exit

Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella is prepared to leave the club in January amid his lack of playing time.

The Spaniard was the subject of interest from Manchester United over the summer, but a loan deal did not materialise.

In the end, Cucurella decided to stay with the Blues, but the decision has proved a wrong one for his career.

The left-back has been an unused substitute in the Premier League and he has only played in the Carabao Cup.

He is currently behind Levi Colwill, Ben Chilwell and Ian Maatsen in the pecking order for the left-back spot.

According to The Sun, Cucurella will push for a move away from Stamford Bridge if his situation does not change.

The Spaniard wants playing time in the prime of his career and is prepared to move on in the next transfer window.

A move abroad could be a solution for the former Brighton man, who was signed for a staggering £57m last year.
