Chelsea captain Gary Cahill could seek the Stamford Bridge exit door when January comes around, according to The Sun.
Casting doubt on Cahill’s future as a Chelsea player is risky business. The Englishman will forever adored by much of the fan base for what he has achieved during his time at the club.
There are those, however, who have grown tired of Cahill’s flimsy performances at the back. It’s unclear whether he can still be relied on.
People calling Cahill loyal, as if every time his place has been under threat he hasn’t been “considering leaving the club” just like in early 2016, 2018 etc – absolute nonsense, he’s “loyal” because no one will pay the wages he’s on and no decent club wants him.

Historically, Maurizio Sarri has placed value on centre-backs who are comfortable with the ball at their feet, able to carry the ball up the field and pass between the lines.
Cahill is an old-fashioned breed of defender. He does the basics well at the back, but little more. In Sarri’s squad, he’s a square peg looking to force his way into a round hole.
So far this campaign he has failed to do so. Cahill has not played a minute for Chelsea in the Premier League this term.
According to The Sun, Cahill’s lack of first-team action could see him call time on a six-year stint in SW6.
