Chelsea’s young French central defensive signing Kurt Zouma will be loaned back out to his current club Saint Etienne for next season, reports France Football.
The 19-year-old was signed by the Blues for €15m in January, but they loaned him back to his French parent side for the remainder of last season, and will do so again next term.
With David Luiz imminently joining PSG, it was thought that Zouma may stay at Stamford Bridge and be used as a backup to Gary Cahill and John Terry, but it now looks as though Chelsea may sign a more experienced player to have on the bench for the first-choice partnership.
Jose Mourinho is being strongly linked with a move for Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, although it’s unlikely that the Champions League winners will want to part with the 21-year-old.
