Chelsea midfielder wants to leave the club in summer
Chelsea midfielder Marko Marin wants to secure a permanent move to La Liga outfit Sevilla next season.
The German international joined Chelsea from Werder Bremen in 2012, but failed to make a significant impression at Stamford Bridge. He was loaned to Sevilla this season, where he has enjoyed a reasonably good campaign.
Speaking to Estadio Deportivo, Marin said: “If both Sevilla and me are happy to stay I can stay here forever.”
“We’ll see what happens in the summer. The first is to play, being fit and helping the team in the end of the season and then we will decide.”
“If the fans want, Monchi (the sporting director) wants and the coach wants, why not?” Marin added.
“But the most important thing is to be fit and play.
“Speaking about a permanent move before that is not worthy because I can’t help the team if I do not play.”
It remains to be seen whether Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will allow Marin to leave on a permanent transfer, though there are no reasons why he should not be sold.
Chelsea have an avalanche of attacking midfielders in their ranks, and Marin would find it hard to get into the first team in the current set-up.
The Blues are enjoying a great campaign under Mourinho and are seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
