The 23 year old Spaniard moved to Stamford Bridge in July 2011 and initially impressed but has gone on to spend the past 18 months out on loan and will demand a permanent exit if he isn’t seen as a part of Jose Mourinho’s first team plans.
The former Barcelona spent last season on loan at Valencia and is said to be enjoying his current stint at Bundesliga side Stuttgart stating;
‘My main objective is to improve my game and I think I can still improve a lot,’
‘The Bundesliga is a good league to grow and to become a better player.
‘We’ll see what happens, but now I’m focused on the present and helping the team.
‘I don’t know what will happen in the next few years but I will never say no to staying in Stuttgart because they have treated me amazingly so far and I’m really happy here.’
It’s likely Mourinho would consider a permanent exit given the number of midfield options he currently possesses, with Romeu behind the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Nemanja Matic, Ramires, John Obi Mikel and fellow loaned out midfielder Marco van Ginkel.
