Conor Gallagher is the name on everyone’s lips right now, with the youngster having made his England debut after impressing early in the season.
Naturally, Chelsea fans are very excited about the midfielder who is on loan with Crystal Palace but remains a Blue.
Now, the Daily Mail has revealed that the club never planned to sell Gallagher, with Chelsea reportedly insistent there would be no option to buy in his deal.
This was apparently done with the goal of bringing the 21-year-old into the first-team picture next season.
It seems the club has been well aware of the quality Gallagher possesses and his recent brilliant form isn’t an unexpected bonus.
While Crystal Palace and other clubs will surely attempt to make a move, Gallagher is set to get his shot at becoming Chelsea’s next great midfielder.
