Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that the club will hold talks with midfielder, Saul Niguez at the end of the season regarding his future at Stamford Bridge.
Niguez is currently on loan at Chelsea from Atletico Madrid.
The Spaniard has not really impressed since joining Chelsea from Atletico Madrid last year.
Niguez has slipped down the pecking order in Tuchel’s squad, making just one appearance since March 10.
This has led to many reports in the media which have suggested that the 27-year-old will not get a permanent move to Chelsea, and many are wondering just what Tuchel will decide about his future at the West London club.
“We will talk about it at the end of the season,” Tuchel was quoted by Football London as saying when asked about Saul’s future at the club on Sunday.
“At the moment, it’s a difficult situation for him personally, but I like that he still gives his input.
“It’s like this in team sports that even if it doesn’t make you happy – and I am sure he is not – he’s still positive and still pushing, he takes care about the quality in training with the group that doesn’t play so much.
“I don’t have a lot of good news for him when I tell him the starting line-up. But he needs to stay involved mentally and physically, that is what he does, although it’s not easy,” he added.
