Marco van Ginkel has recently been included in The Blues’ revised squad list for the second part of the Premier League season. The Dutchman, however, won’t help Chelsea until March as he is still recovering from an operation to reconstruct his anterior cruciate ligament.
However, it seems like the 26-year-old is fully determined to put on a blue shirt once again if he receives a call from Maurizio Sarri.
The central midfielder has uploaded a picture of himself with a promising caption via his Instagram: “Another day at the club. Working hard on my recovery. We keep going to come back!”
Van Ginkel joined The Blues in 2013 from the Eredivisie side Vitesse for £8m.
Since his debut for Chelsea against Basel in the Champions League, the midfielder has featured in only three official games: he spent 11 minutes on the pitch in the victories over Hull City and Aston Villa in 2013 while also coming on in the League Cup clash with Swindon Town the same year.
The Dutchman has already been loaned out three times since moving to Stamford Bridge.
He spent the 2014/15 season at AC Milan and joined join Stoke City the following year. Van Ginkel was also a player of PSV from 2015 to 2018. The Eredivisie side reportedly wanted to offer the player a permanent deal but Chelsea blocked the move last summer.
