Michael Essien looking for Chelsea exit

According to his agent Michael Essien could move from Chelsea during the January transfer window says The London Evening Standard.

Since spending last season on loan at Real Madrid under Jose Mourinho the Ghanaian international has only managed three Premiership appearances for Chelsea this season.

Essien arrived at the west London club from Lyon in 2005 where he went on to win two Premier League titles, the Champions League and four FA Cups.

Agent Fabian Piveteau thinks that due to his lack of playing time this season it might help pave the way to another big club that is still involved in the Champions League, for which he would be eligible to play

“He could leave the Blues this winter,” Piveteau told French radio station RMC.

“Several major European clubs playing in the Champions League were informed and the situation should settle down within the next 10 days.

“You should know that Michael was not on the list of players who can play in the Champions League with Chelsea, so he is free to play in the competition with another club.”
