£30,000-a-week shot-stopper wants to leave Chelsea next summer
London club goalkeeper Willy Caballero has revealed his desire to come back to La Liga in the summer ahead of his deal with Chelsea expiring. Argentina international’s contract at Chelsea only runs until the end of this campaign, with the shot-stopper now talking up the possibility of him heading back to La Liga ahead of his contract expiring.
Willy stated “I end the deal at the end of the campaign and we’ll see what happens in the future. I want to return to Spain. Elche or Malaga? Of course, but it’s not just about what you want, it’s about wanting you and giving you the circumstances.”
Caballero has been a useful figure for Frank Lampard’s side since his arrival during the summer of 2017, with the 38-year-old goalkeeper making 24 appearances since then, keeping ten clean sheets in the process.
The Argentine shot-stopper has played for both Elche and Malaga in the past and given his words here, it looks like Willy’s keen to make a come back to Spain and play again the very best La Liga has to offer once again.
During his time with Malaga, Caballero managed to establish himself as one of the top ‘keepers in Spain, with the Argentine’s displays helping Malaga secure two top-six finishes during his time there.
These performances earned Caballero a move to Man City, where he helped the club win many pieces of silverware, with the Citizens then letting him go three years after his arrival, with Blues then snapping him up. And now, it looks like Caballero’s career could come full circle if these words from the footballer himself are to be believed.
