Mauricio Pochettino held talks with Marc Cucurella over his future

Marc Cucurella is considered surplus to Mauricio Pochettino’s requirements.

The Spaniard arrived at Stamford Bridge last summer in a deal worth £62 million and his contract runs out in the summer of 2028.

He struggled to find his best form in his debut season and was linked with a summer departure.

Cucurella was expected to make a loan move to Man United but the deal later collapsed and would consider leaving Chelsea in January.

If he fails to secure regular playing time at Chelsea, the former Brighton defender would sanction a move in the next transfer window.

But Mauricio Pochettino has held a conversation with the player regarding his future at the club.

He said: “After, when the transfer window closed, we were talking in my office.

“We were really clear about how I see and assess him and I listened to his feelings. Of course, it was a difficult time for him after he arrived from Brighton.

“I think he was doing well and I am so happy about his performance and commitment. That’s what we expect from our players.

“Now, it is about working, waiting for the opportunity and working really hard. It is a really clear situation, he is in our plan. If he deserves to play, he will play.”
