Update on Gary Cahill’s Chelsea future

Cahill is considering his future

Chelsea player Gary Cahill is considering his future at the club.

Once a mainstay in the defence, it’s been harder for Cahill to get in the team since the start of the season.

Under Maurizio Sarri, Cahill hasn’t featured, and it could well be the case he leaves.

Another sticking point for Chelsea is the fact Cahill’s current contract is coming to an end, with around 12 months left.

Chelsea don’t want to let their skipper leave on a free, and Cahill wants to be playing matches.

Now, it seems he could be in for a move to Galatasaray.

Cahill also has one eye on international duty, with the Mail claiming manager Gareth Southgate wants to keep him in contention for selection.

All of that contributes to the idea that Cahill could see his future away from Chelsea.

Chelsea fighting for the title

Chelsea won the FA Cup last season,  but still elected to sack Antonio Conte and replace him with Sarri.

Under their new manager, the Blues know they need to get into the top four this season at the absolute worst.

However, Chelsea could well be putting together a title challenge and have won their opening two games, with Newcastle to play this weekend.

Sarri will want to play his strongest available team, and while there were questions about the defence against Arsenal, Chelsea still came out with three points.
