Chelsea Brazilian playmaker Lucas Piazon has admitted he hopes to leave Chelsea as soon as possible.
Since joining Chelsea 8 years ago, Piazon has made just 3 competitive appearances for the Blues, only one of them in the Premier League.
Piazon has spent time on loan at Malaga, Vitesse, Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany, and then with Reading and Fulham in the Championship, playing a significant role as the Cottagers reached the play-off semi-finals in 2016/17 and then the following year won promotion to the Premier League with victory over Aston Villa at Wembley.
Piazon joined Rio Ave on a two year loan deal this summer but hopes to leave Chelsea on a permanent deal after years of leaving the club on loan.
“I’ve been at Chelsea since 2011, I’ve been on loan almost all over Europe,” the 25-year-old told A Bola. “I’m tired of playing here and there, I need a place where I can feel at home. I want to know that in July I will return to the same place, to the same house. Being moving all the time is very complicated.
“Playing at Chelsea is hard. In addition to the big players who are often signed, there’s also the pressure to put the younger and best players from the academy, which is no longer my case.
“It didn’t make much sense for the club to get me playing, especially at a time when they made €100m signings and also had a lot of house talent coming up. My time at Chelsea is over. I’m 25, I’ve been on loan several times.
“I’d have a good season on loan, but I’d come back and was soon loaned again. There was no point in going out on loan, playing well, coming back, not being used and being loaned again. There comes a time in your career that makes no sense anymore. By the way, I said exactly that three years ago and it didn’t go so well at Chelsea, it generated some discomfort.
“I can’t just blame Chelsea, because I also accepted all that. But of course, there came a time when I thought that being loaned again would no longer be necessary, I had to go on with my life.”
