Brazilian footballer Lucas Piazon has only played three times for the Blues, having been loaned seven times during the last seven years.

Brazilian winger Lucas Piazon has been a Chelsea player since he graduated from the youth system in 2012.

But he has only played three games for the Blues, having been loaned seven times already.

He first was loaned to Malaga, then Vitesse, then Frankfurt, then Reading, Fulham, Chievo, and now to Rio Ave.

Which is why he knows his Chelsea days are over.

“I’m 25, I’ve been on loan several times. I’ve been at Chelsea since 2011, I’ve been on loan almost all over Europe.

“I’m tired of playing here and there, I need a place where I can feel at home. I want to know that in July I will return to the same place, to the same house,” he told The Daily Mail.

“I’d have a good season on loan, but I’d come back and was soon loaned again. There was no point in going out on loan, playing well, coming back, not being used and being loaned again.”

He added: “There comes a time in your career that makes no sense anymore. By the way, I said exactly that three years ago and it didn’t go so well at Chelsea, it generated some discomfort.”

“I can’t just blame Chelsea, because I also accepted all that.”

“But of course, there came a time when I thought that being loaned again would no longer be necessary, I had to go on with my life,” he concluded.
