Gael Kakuta has hinted that he may not have a future at Chelsea when his loan spell at Rayo Vallecano ends.
The 23-year-old was once one of Europe’s most highly-rated young players, but his controversial move to the Blues in 2009 has only garnered a handful of first-team appearances – his last having been during the 2010/11 season.
In the meantime he’s been away on six different loan deals, with Rayo in Spain the latest to take on the winger.
He’s scored two goals so far in 12 appearances for his adopted side, and some rumours have suggested that Jose Mourinho has been impressed with the Frenchman.
But with competition for a starting berth in west London high, it appears unlikely that Kakuta will be able to force his way back into Chelsea’s plans, and he’s hinted that his long-term future is far from clear:
“My goal at the moment is to continue growing as a player here [at Rayo],” he is quoted by talkSPORT.
“Time will decide what will happen. I do not look beyond the day-to-day. It is best to keep focused on what I do, which is nothing else but helping Rayo get good results.”
