Chelsea midfielder Essien on verge of completing loan switch to Milan

Michael Essien could be on the verge of leaving Chelsea, with Italian giants AC Milan set to take the 31-year-old Ghanaian international on loan, reports The Daily Mail.


Michael Essien


The former Lyon midfielder’s agent is presently in Italy thrashing out the terms of the deal, which would see the player making his second loan spell away from the club since joining in 2005 having spent the 2012-13 season on-loan in Spain with Real Madrid, ironically under current Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho – who was the man to take Essien to west London during his first stint in charge.


Essien has made just five Blues appearances since Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge during the summer, and it is believed that the plan was always to allow the experienced midfielder to seek a loan move during this transfer window – and Milan fits his bill.


Of those five appearances, only one was a full 90-minute outing – in the win over struggling Crystal Palace in December.


With the World Cup in Brazil looming large on the horizon, Essien has been keen to move to a club where he can gain plenty of first team football in order to maximise his chances of participating for his native Ghana at the tournament.


When asked about guaranteeing first team chances, manager Mourinho replied: “'I offer nobody - not Michael, not nobody [guaranteed playing time]. I understand that players think about national team, the World Cup and playing regularly, but my players have to think of the team before the players. Michael knows that perfectly.”
