‘Right Time To Move On’ ‘The Guy’s A Legend’ – Fans React To Chelsea Veteran Loan Exit Reports

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill will be allowed to leave on loan in January, according to multiple reports in the English media.

The Blues defender has spent seven years at Stamford Bridge, and with his contract expiring at the end of the season, it means a move would effectively end his career at the London club.

Supporters on Twitter reacted with a variety of different views to the decision to let Cahill go:

Manchester United, West Ham, Southampton, Fulham, as well as former club Aston Villa have all been touted as possible destinations for the 32-year-old.

Cahill has won the Champions League, the Europa League, two Premier League titles, two FA Cups and one League Cup during his time at the club, as well as racking up 288 appearances so far.

However, under manager Maurizio Sarri this campaign, he has become a fringe player, starting only five matches, and making just one substitute appearance in the Premier League.

The England international has previously commented that he would consider leaving in January for first-team football, and it seems that he has gotten his wish.
