Chelsea have agreed to pay back half of midfielder’s €1 million loan fee if the player gets to play more than 20 games this season, reports Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
The creative midfielder Marco van Ginkel moved to the San Siro along with Fernando Torres on the last day of the summer transfer window. Chelsea is desperate to give Ginkel more playing time, so that he can be ready for the regular first team appearances at the Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea has not given AC Milan to buy out the player, which is a sure indication that the Blues want the attacking midfielder back in the squad by next season, and Marco van Ginkel is happy about it.
“AC Milan wanted me for a long time and did everything to get me,” the 21-year-old told the Milan Channel. “That is good for a player to know. We play with two attacking midfielders and a defensive one. I think I am more of an attacking one.
“Right now I am focused entirely on Milan, but I’m happy with the fact that Chelsea didn’t put an option to buy in the loan.” (Source: Sports Mole)
