Agent: Malang Sarr could leave Chelsea on loan in January transfer window


Malang Sarr could leave Chelsea on loan in the January transfer window, his agent has revealed.

Following his switch to a free transfer last summer from OGC Nice, the 22-year-old has yet to become a regular at Chelsea.

He was loaned out last season at Porto before returning to Cobham this summer. Another loan period awaited him for his development, but no movement materialized.

Sarr remained at Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel, who saw him make three appearances in all competitions, including a Premier League debut in his 1-0 win over Brentford earlier this month.

The French defender was due to leave for Germany to join Eintracht Frankfurt this summer for the 2021/22 campaign, his agent Federico Pastorello said, but the change failed at the last minute,

As the January transfer window approaches, Sarr’s short-term future will need to be resolved and a loan period is being considered, his agent said.

“That’s what we wanted this summer (a loan) and we had practically made a deal with Eintracht Frankfurt, but they couldn’t move a player, so Malang stayed,” Pastorello told the Telegraph.

“Let’s see in January what will happen. Maybe he can then be loaned out because he might need a season or two of play on a regular basis before coming back, as many Chelsea players have done.

Pastorello believes the center-back will eventually get to Chelsea once he completes the necessary loan periods, while also comparing him to current captain Cesar Azpilicueta.

“I see in Malang the same attitude, the same focus, the same talent as Azpi when he joined Chelsea”, added Pastorello.

“It sets the bar so high and of course Malang needs to improve tactically because Azpi is a genius, he is a teacher. But, as I was with Azpi, I’m 100% sure that he will end up being a player for Chelsea.
