Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder unsure if his future lies at Stamford Bridge or La Mestalla.
Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has spoken out about the uncertainty of his future.
The former FC Barcelona man has spent the season on loan at Valencia, and has been enjoying a fruitful spell in his home country of Spain.
Romeu, who is now 22 years of age, once again starred last night for Los Che during their first victory against FC Barcelona in any competition since March 2008, and first league triumph since February 2007.
However, despite an average of 2.6 tackles and 2.2 interceptions per La Liga match this term, as well as 63.1 passes, Romeu knows impressive statistics won’t guarantee him a place in the Blues line-up next season.
“I have no idea [what will happen in the summer]. I need to decide at the end of the season. Many things can happen,” Romeu told the Daily Mail.
“We will sit down and decide what is best for me to do.
“They are watching me and they are always telling me things. They are looking after me and that’s good.
“You never know what can happen, but they are looking after me.”
Chelsea signed Nemanja Matic in the January transfer window to add more competition places in defensive midfield, and Romeu may struggle to find a start in his favoured anchor role next season.
However, with Blues boss Jose Mourinho having made useful profits on Kevin De Bruyne and Juan Mata upon their respective sales, he will hope that Romeu’s increased value from good performances can bring in similar success should player and club decide to part ways.
