Lucas Piazon has announced his time at Chelsea is ‘already over’ despite signing a contract extension during the summer.
The 25-year-old Brazilian joined Chelsea in 2011 as one of the world’s most promising talents, but has been shipped out on seven different loan spells. Piazon joined Portuguese side Rio Ave earlier this month and Chelsea confirmed he had signed a new deal to extend his current contract to 2021.
Chelsea are expecting Piazon to return to Stamford Bridge next summer, but the winger has other plans, telling A Bola: ‘My time at Chelsea is already over.
‘I’m 25, I’ve been on loan several times. I’ve been at Chelsea since 2011, I’ve been on loan almost all over Europe. 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.
‘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.’ Added the Brazilian midfielder.
