Saul expressed his excitement immediately when signing for the Blues. But after completing his last-minute switch to Chelsea, the midfield maestro seems to be regretting the move according to sources, with the player struggling for game time.

Saul has been subjected to just Two premier league appearances and as many FA Cup games, with the player formerly and a consistent performer under Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.

A move to Chelsea would have been seen as a welcome boost to his career as he was Expected to play a key role alongside the likes of Jorginho and Kante, but what was expected isn’t what is being seen.

According to an inside source, Saul is very unhappy with the current situation, which is very logical. Why bring a player on loan from a top club like Atletico Madrid only to leave him on bench consistently.

He was even rumoured to have a showdown with Thomas Tuchel in the dressing room recently, where he made his feeling know to the coach. With the player reportedly telling Tuchel, “You brought me here on loan to Bench me. Pathetic”.

Of course this will not sit well with the German coach, little wonder there are already reports making waves that Chelsea will not trigger his £30m buy option. However, whatever the case may be, Thomas Tuchel’s team is playing just fine, so his decision may very well be justified.
