It’s reported Chelsea have turned down Milan’s request to take Marco van Ginkel on loan with option to buy.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the approach to bring in the 21-year-old Dutch international was rejected.
Jose Mourinho put the brakes on the deal, insisting van Ginkel can still deliver at Stamford Bridge.
He only managed eight appearances for Chelsea in all competition last season, as he was sidelined by a knee injury.
