Alexandre Pato set for Chelsea loan as Gary Cahill looks for a way out

English Premier League (EPL) club Chelsea defender Gary Cahill wants to move to a different club with hopes of better game time. However, the Premier League champions will not allow the English defender to leave this January. Cahill fears that his lack of football could cost him a place in the England national team at Euro 2016.

Cahill is reportedly considering his future at Stamford Bridge after falling out-of-favor under the current Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink. The 30-year-old feels the need to weigh up other options to brighten up his career.

The Blues are looking to sign Matt Miazga, according to The Guardian. Despite the signature of the United States international, Cahill won’t be allowed to move to a new club in the January transfer window. Miazga currently features for Major League Soccer (MLS) side New York Red Bulls and wants to move to Europe for better opportunities.

Miazga is a well-built defender with 6ft 4in height. He has been a regular in US junior sides and has a Polish passport. Chelsea is considering Miazga as a signing for the future. However, the US star has been assured that he won’t be shipped out on loan immediately after signing for the Blues.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are expected to complete the loan signing of Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato within this week. The 26-year-old was seen in London on Wednesday. Pato currently plays for Brazilian club Corinthians and will sign a loan deal with the Premier League champions. The Brazilian will hope to make the deal permanent next season with some impressive displays, as reported by Independent.

Finally, Chelsea midfielder Ramires has left Stamford Bridge for Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning for a fee of £20 million (US $28.71 million). The fee could eventually rise up to £25 million (US $35.88 million).

The Chelsea hierarchy is looking to bring in a new midfielder to replace Ramires. However, their target is still unknown.
