Ross Barkley is not happy at Chelsea and could leave the club, just few months after joining them in the January transfer window.
The former Everton man made the move to Stamford Bridge for a fee of £15m back at the start of 2018 and has since then not been given too much game time for his new club.
He has been more or less a mere spectator since joining the west London outfit and will not be happy, with the way that Conte has utilized his services so far.
With that being said, the Italian manager’s exit from the club would be a huge boost for his morale and the England international will be hoping that the new manager will make better use of him.
He is just 24 at present and has a long way to go still and can be a real asset to the Londoners, if he is given more time on the pitch than off it.
The attacking midfielder has just made three appearances for the FA Cup winners so far, all in January and will want to play more regularly on the pitch, than sit on the sidelines and just watch.
If the new manager who comes in can’t assure him more game time, he might consider leaving the club and moving on with his career in the summer transfer window.
The Sun had recently made this claim, though it is still not clear which club he might join in the upcoming days if he decides to leave.
Barkley came to Chelsea to win titles and he has already won the domestic cup with them in just a few months. Though the London based club have not played him much, he knows that if he wishes to win more, he should remain with the club in the long run and try to earn a place in the playing eleven, by fighting for it, rather than just leave and move away.
It will however will be a tough choice for him to make and the new manager could have a major impact in deciding his future. What happens now, only time will tell.
