Lucas piazon on his Chelsea future: 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 If i will return to the same place, to the same house.'
Lucas Piazon has revealed his future likely lies away from Chelsea despite having penned a contract extension at the London club just last week.
The attacking midfielder had been shipped out to Rio Ave on the same day as the renewal, in what was his seventh loan spell since originally signing for Chelsea in 2012.
Piazon had reportedly requested a permanent move away instead but the Blues had been hesitant to let the 25-year-old leave on a free transfer in the summer.
Speaking to Portuguese newspaper A Bola, Piazon admitted his time at Chelsea was over.
He said: '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.'
The Brazilian also explained his disappointment with a lack of first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge, despite a series of fruitful loan spells at Reading and Fulham as well as in Spain, Germany and Holland.
Piazon added: '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.
'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.'
But the frustrated star, despite currently remaining the Blues' longest-serving player without establishing himself in the first-team, doesn't solely blame the London club for his misfortune.
'I can't just blame Chelsea, because I also accepted all that,' he said.
'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.'
Piazon's new deal runs until the summer of 2022, a year after the player will return to his parent club from the two-season loan spell in Brazil.
