Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has impressed while on loan at Crystal Palace.
Loftus-Cheek has been compared to Chelsea great Michael Ballack after his impressive display in Crystal Palace’s 5-0 demolition of Leicester City.
“He’s Michael Ballack of the midfield,” former Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino told talkSPORT.
“He can be an attacker, he shields the ball brilliantly, and for Wilf [Zaha’s] goal… his tight control in possession – he does it brilliantly.
“You cannot ignore him.
“He won’t be the Mo Salah, the Kevin De Bruyne that’s let go by Chelsea.
“If any club thinks they are going to snatch him away from Chelsea on the cheap, that is not going to happen to Loftus-Cheek for me.
“I think he’ll be a Chelsea player next year.”
