Report: Moyes remains a big fan of Chelsea player

David Moyes is a ‘big fan’ of Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley and he could emerge as a realistic option next season if Thomas Tuchel overlooks him according to a report in the Daily Telegraph

Barkley has not played 90 minutes in the Premier League for Aston Villa since January and his hopes of an England recall this summer are over.

It is now inevitable that he will return to Chelsea at the end of the season, where he will face an uncertain future under a manager, Thomas Tuchel, who has never worked with him before. Villa are highly unlikely to pay the £30 million fee to sign him permanently and it is difficult to see who would.

Barkley might want to emulate Jesse Lingard in re-inventing himself at West Ham to turn around his career.

A loan with an option to buy might suit all parties to allow Moyes to try before he buys.

    • Me too, I am still hoping Moyes’s promise of young talented players will come true, he does not fit into this category.

    • Not sure what else moyes needs to do to get some fans to trust him when it comes to signings.

  1. There is a reason he gets no play time for Aston Villa. He had a good start after which he became invisible.
    There are better, cheaper alternatives.

  2. Don’t think so. Moyes will want new permanent signings to be young upwardly mobile players like Bowen, souchek, fornals and Rice.

  3. Having just seen him against Liverpool this afternoon i can’t see what Moyes likes about him. I imagine this is just more paper talk

  4. Doubt it very much. He is not quick and his best years are behind him. High price, high wages and no staying power. He often fades from games and has never been prolific. Hopefully DM has moved us on from signing fat contract end of career cruisers.
