According to a quote attributed to Marco Van Ginkel’s agent, the Dutchman wants to play for Chelsea’s first team next season and he is hopeful of convincing Mourinho to retain him but should that not be case, he will critically consider making his loan move to AC Milan a permanent one.
Van Ginkel who is currently on a season long loan spell with the Italians has only had four first team appearances for Chelsea since joining from Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem in 2013 in a deal season to be worth as much as £8 million.
The Holland international suffered a major knee injury in the summer of 2013 after which he was sent on a season long loan deal with AC Milan for this season. Even with AC Milan, he has struggled with one injury to the other and only just started to do well with the Italian. His recent performance for the sleeping giants of Italian football has fuelled speculations about a possible permanent deal.
Speaking to the media, the player’s agent Karel Jansen said; “Staying at Milan? Anything is possible, there is no reason to rule it out.
“It is early and we need to see what would happen in case there’s a change of management at the club.
“Additionally we have to deal with Chelsea and see what Marco wants to do. Chelsea is still his goal. We hope to conclude everything before the end of the transfer window.”
Should Mourinho decide not to keep the player, the club will hope to at least recoup the £8m they paid to acquire him in 2013, a fee that may price out AC Milan of a possible permanent deal.
