Oriol Romeu: Eager to keep impressing during Valencia loan spell

Oriol Romeu: Eager to keep impressing during Valencia loan spell

The Spanish midfielder joined Valencia on a season-long deal in the summer, two years after he made the move to Stamford Bridge from Barcelona.

He struggled to hold down a regular starting spot with the Blues and his progress was also disrupted by a serious knee injury, but he has been pleased with his form for Valencia this season.

Reports in Spain suggest that Jose Mourinho is keen to take Romeu back to Chelsea next season, giving the 22-year-old added motivation to maintain his form.

"If [the talk of a possible return] is true it is really good, I hope so. It is good that they are interested in me," Romeu told Levante TV.

"I know that they are following me and they are happy with my recent performances. They have congratulated me but I have not spoken directly to Mourinho.

"Chelsea scouters told me recently that there are not many players in my position and that if I have a good season they will want me back next year."

Romeu's main concern is playing regularly and, as he is enjoying his time at Valencia, he has suggested he would be open to signing a permanent deal if Chelsea decide he remains surplus to requirements at the end of the season.

He said: "I came to Valencia because I liked it a lot, and if I cannot get the chance to play in the Premier League I may decide to stay, as I decided to come to Valencia last summer for the same reason."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
