Chelsea could still lose the Spanish midfielder Oriol Romeu, who was signed from Barcelona last season, according to the Chelsea Football News website. The 20-year-old Spaniard was signed up by the English club for around £ 4 million.
However, it is thought that he has a buyback option in his contract that will allow Barcelona to get the player back for £ 8 million in this season. Due to the fact that the option has now expired following the close of the transfer window. Barcelona still have the option to get the player for £ 13 million in the upcoming summer transfer window.
The midfielder has also expressed his desire to one-day play for Barcelona again. He has said that he was confident that Barcelona would believe that he would make to step up. Had it not been the case, then they would not have inserted the clause in his contract. The 20-year-old is yet to feature in the Chelsea first-team. However, he is confident that there will be enough games during the course of the season for him to play regular first-team football. His presence has meant that the club had to send Josh McEachran on a loan deal till the end of the season to the Championship club Middlesbrough.
“If Tito Vilanova wants me there, I would talk to him and discuss it with him. If they want me to enjoy my football and show some confidence in me, then onwards and upwards. Returning to Barcelona is an option but it depends on many things, because I want to play. I’ve always felt like a big Barcelona supporter, I am very grateful to FC Barcelona and it’s thanks to them that I am where I am. I wanted to play more and Chelsea showed confidence in me, but if FC Barcelona want you to play,” said Romeu.
