Chelsea outcast Lucas Piazon slams club’s loan transfer policy having not played for the Blues since 2012
11th October 2020

CHELSEA outcast Lucas Piazon has lashed out at the club for their loan policy.

The Blues have owned the Brazilian striker since 2012 which was the last time he played for the West Londoners' first team.

Piazon, 26, is currently on loan with Portuguese top flight side Rio Ave.

This is his seventh loan spell since arriving at Chelsea from Sao Paulo in his homeland and the Brazil Under-23 international does not think much of the way the Blues have treated him.

He told Maisfutebol: "After a certain point the connection is no longer beneficial for both parties.

“At first, I felt really good. I went through the U-23s, got to the first team and, even in the first loans, I felt Chelsea had expectations and interest in me.

“I believed I could come back and have opportunities at any time.

“Later, as time passed, I became just another business for them.

"They send me out on loan with the expectation of selling me and making some money with me. I think that’s more or less what they think.”

Before Rio Ave, Pizaon was loaned to Chievo Verona, Fulham, Reading, Eintracht Frankfurt, Vitesse Arnhem, and Malaga.

He has featured twice for Rio Ave so far this season but has failed to score or provide an assist.

It emerged last week Chelsea have 25 players out on loan with a combined value of£121.96million.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek at Fulham, Ross Barkley at Aston Villa and Tiemoue Bakayoko at Napoli are the highest valued stars currently with other teams.
