– Lucas Piazon is now on the verge of leaving Premier League side Chelsea
– The Brazilian has only played three games since 2012 he joined the Blues
– Chelsea are in talks with three clubs over the transfer of the 26-year-old player
Chelsea who are Premier League giants have reportedly terminated the loan spell of Brazilian footballer Lucas Piazon at Rio Ave and he is expected to leave the Blues after nine years.
Lucas Piazon actually joined Chelsea in 2012 and was touted as the next ‘Kaka’ when he moved to Stamford Bridge, but he was unable to fight his way inside the Blues squad.
The Blues’ chiefs however sent him on loan seven times for him to get active playing time elsewhere so as to help his professional career.
He has been able to play only three games for the Stamford Bridge landlords since joining the Blues from Sao Paolo.
According to the report on GOAL, three clubs are already talking with Chelsea over the signing of Lucas as the Blues are ready to sell the winger.
However, Piazon has six months to go on his current deal with the Blues, an option for a one year extension means that they can still profit from his departure.
He last played for Chelsea more than eight years ago in December 2012 when he came on for 16 minutes of their 8-0 win against Aston Villa.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are currently occupying ninth position on the Premier League table with 28 points after 17 games played so far this season.
