Loftus-Cheek ready for Chelsea contract talks - with one demand

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is ready to discuss new terms with Chelsea.

The Sun says the midfielder has another two years left on his current deal, but club chief Marina Granovskaia wants to sit down with the academy graduate about extending his stay at Stamford Bridge beyond 2021.

But the 23-year-old wants to be told he is a genuine part of the Blues first-team plans moving forward.

The England star has only started six Prem games this term scoring six goals.

And despite a niggling back injury, there is a suggestion Loftus-Cheek feels he should have started more games this season under Maurizio Sarri.
