Ben Chilwell has not always had the best of times at Chelsea.

He was mooted as the next big thing in English football when the Blues snapped him up, but not all has gone to plan. The wideman continues to be linked with a possible exit from Stamford Bridge, in order for the club to raise some easy funds.

But, according to former Chelsea star Wayne Bridge – who knows all about the pressures of signing for the Blues as a high potential English full back – Chilwell should remain put.

Speaking to Betfred this week, Bridge said: ” “I believe they’ll have to buy a new one if Ben Chilwell was to leave.

“Marc Cucrella did really well at Brighton, he’s done okay for Spain, but it hasn’t really worked out for him at Chelsea really.

“It’s hard, when you move clubs, to continue playing as well as you have been. You can play in different formations and you’re playing with different players.

“Just because you’ve done really well for one club doesn’t mean that you’re going to automatically click within another.

“It doesn’t always go that way. If the decision was mine, out of the two I’d be keeping Ben Chilwell.”
