Daniel Sturridge: Could be set to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window

Daniel Sturridge: Could be set to leave Chelsea in the January transfer window

Sturridge has struggled to establish himself as a regular at Stamford Bridge and it was reported earlier this week that Liverpool were closing in on a move for the forward.

Fresh speculation has suggested that the deal has hit a snag, but Benitez refused to give too much away and would only hint that there could be a switch next month.

"He was training with us yesterday," Benitez said in the Fulham & Hammersmith Chronicle. "But that was just one training session. So now we have to wait, because he was injured.

"To be fair, I only saw him three times last week, so he couldn't train too much in this time with him."

Asked if Sturridge was set for a move, Benitez said: "We will see. You never know in the market."

Benitez insisted he was in the dark over stories linking the 23-year-old with a move to Liverpool.

"I don't know what they said, because I didn't read the press," the Chelsea manager commented.

Sturridge: We're moving on

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
