Chelsea captain Gary Cahill ready to walk out

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill is ready to leave this summer.

The London Evening Standard says Cahill is considering bringing his six-year career at Stamford Bridge to an end this month as the club close in on a £44.2million deal for Daniele Rugani.

The England centre-back, who joined from Bolton for £7m in January 2012 and has won six major trophies with the club, lost his place as a first team regular last term.

Cahill is now on holiday, having been away with England in Russia for the past month, but it is believed he will seek talks with new coach Maurizio Sarri on his return.

Sarri may have a tough job convincing him to stay. Cahill has told close friends that he wants assurances that he will feature more regularly than last season, when Conte gave him just 24 Premier League starts.
