Chelsea ready goodbye message for experienced centre-back

Timothy Aiyeku



Gary Cahill

The winter transfer window is getting closer as it reopens in coming weeks, hinting that West London side Chelsea are set to lose one of their most experienced central defender, Gary Cahill.

The England international is well known in the English league as one of the solid and experienced players in the league but he has been relegated in the ranks at the Stamford Bridge by manager Maurizio Sarri.

The Chelsea boss could not hide it by stating that he is well pleased with the partnership of David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger at his defence.

No wonder Gary Cahill has been left out of most Premier League games and that is no longer comfortable for the former Bolton star which makes him seek a move away from the club.

However, Turkish outfit Galatasaray have emerged as a strong suitor for Cahill as they wish to strengthen their defence with the Chelsea outcast knowing that his contract at the Stamford Bridge runs out at the end of the season.

This means that the six years spell of the England international with 189 appearances so far would come to an end in the summer.

Cahill has also enjoyed 61 England caps and was part of the team that made it to the FIFA World Cup in Russia earlier this year.
