Pochettino recalls Chelsea midfielder back to Stamford Bridge

Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea have recalled Italy’s U21 star and midfielder Cesare Casadei from his loan spell at Leicester City.

Cesare was brought to Stamford Bridge in 2022 for £13million and immediately sent out on loan to Reading followed by Leicester this season.

Casadei made 25 appearances in all competitions for Leicester.

The 21-year-old scored three goals for the Foxes this term.

But Blues boss Pochettino has recalled the midfielder, who was set to stay at the King Power Stadium until the summer.

And fans are convinced this means Gallagher will be heading out the exit door as a result.
