Chelsea set to call back their loaned-out talented midfielder from AC Milan

Marco van Ginkel has made just one start for the Italian side.

Chelsea have grown frustrated of AC Milan’s treatment of their loaned-out player Marco van Ginkel who is on a season-long loan at the club, but, has made only one appearance for the Italian side.

The 21-year-old midfielder had earlier picked up a knee ligament injury during his debut against Empoli back in September. However, despite being fully fit, he is not being given first team chances, something that Chelsea's head coach Jose Mourinho was looking for while accepting Milan’s loan offer.

The player’s agent, Karel Jansen, was quoted by Standard stating, "The build-up in the beginning at Milan was good. Marco began the season on the bench and it was expected as he was getting used to a new club and country.”

“But even after he recovered from the injury he has had very little time on the pitch,” he added. “We were not happy about it and it went against all logic,” his agent explained. “We made it clear that this was not the intention when he joined on loan. Marco did not have to go to Italy and do nothing.”

Chelsea are said to have already started contacting other clubs to loan van Ginkel out somewhere else for the second half of the season.

“Look, if he wasn’t very good, this treatment was understandable but a fit Van Ginkel would walk into the Milan side. Chelsea have not pulled the plug, but they might if the current situation continues.”
