Sorry Lazio, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is not yet interested in joining


Lazio was bitten by Ruben Loftus-Cheek because next season he is still playing for Chelsea.

Crazy Ball Lazio’s desire to sign Ruben Loftus-Cheek this summer failed. Jonathan Barnett as his agent ensures that his client in the 2022/23 competition continues to play at Chelsea.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek was often overlooked at Chelsea, but now he is getting enough playing time under Thomas Tuchel. In the 2021/2022 season, he made 18 appearances as a starter and 21 as a substitute in all competitions.

However, the 26-year-old footballer continues to be linked with leaving Chelsea. From the news circulating, the player will most likely continue his career to the Italian League with Lazio which is now being polished by Maurizio Sarri.

The coach of a top team in the Italian League with Ruben Loftus-Cheek was admitted by his agent that there was indeed a close relationship. If later he will join the team nicknamed The Eagle, then the potential to become the first choice is very large.

However, Jonathan Barnett gave a strong signal that his client will not go to Lazio but will continue his football career with Chelsea for the new season.

Talk to Tuttosport, Jonathan Barnett confirmed that there is a good relationship between Maurizio Sarri and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. But he also emphasized that now there is nothing to talk about.

Barnett explained Chelsea is still a top club. So it will be difficult for Lazio’s aim to leave Stamford Bridge in the near future.

Please note, Ruben Loftus-Cheek is not the main choice at Chelsea. However, the midfielder still has two more years on his contract in West London, so neither party is in a rush to make a final decision on his future.

The top teams in the Italian League clearly need the services of English footballers. The reason, he can play as a central midfielder, defend and attack. Lazio itself does have players of the type like Ruben Loftus-Cheek including Luis Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, but Sarri needs a refresher. Moreover, next season they play in the Europa League.
