Gary Cahill linked with Roma switch as England defender considers Chelsea future

first_img Chelsea and England defender Gary Cahill 1 Roma are understood to be weighing up a shock approach for Chelsea defender Gary Cahill.The England vice-captain has endured a difficult season for the Premier League champions so far and has started just twice under interim manager Guus Hiddink, who has preferred to use Kurt Zouma as John Terry’s centre-back partner.While Cahill’s place in England’s Euro 2016 squad is not understood to be under threat, the former Bolton centre-back may consider a move this month to improve his chances of cementing a starting place in Roy Hodgson’s side in the summer.And, according to Il Messaggero, Roma’s directors are keen on bringing Cahill to Italy to add some experience to their back-line.However, Cahill’s high wage demands could prove a stumbling block in any potential deal.The 30-year-old currently earns around £3.8million a year at Stamford Bridge, which will be difficult for the Italian club to match should they decide to pursue with the deal.last_img read more
