Essien agent cannot rule out Chelsea exit for Spain

The agent of Michael Essien has dropped a bombshell admitting he could leave Chelsea this summer.

Essien missed five months last season with a knee injury but starred in the FA Cup win.

His agent Fabien Piveteau is adamant the 26-year-old is happy at Stamford Bridge but says a move to the continent could tempt him away.

"Some clubs are interested in Michael," said Piveteau. "He likes Chelsea very much, but football is football and if Real Madrid, Barcelona or some other club make an offer he needs to sit down and discuss what is best for him."
