Chelsea second choice goalie Willy Caballero has disclosed that he would welcome a transfer to Spain if the Blues fail to extend his stay at Stamford Bridge next summer.
The 38-year-old Argentine goalkeeper has been Chelsea’s second choice goalie since he joined the Blues two years ago and his contract will expire at the end of the season.
Willy Caballero joined Chelsea from Manchester City and he has only played 24 games since he got to Stamford Bridge.
He said: “I end the contract at the end of the season and we’ll see what happens in the future. I do not have to return to Argentina because I feel more like a European player. Here I came very young and I left my country at 22.
“I would like to return to Spain. Elche or Malaga? Of course, but it’s not just about what you want, it’s about [the clubs] wanting you and giving you the circumstances. At the moment, I’m a Chelsea player and will see what happens in June.”
WILLY CABALLERO has revealed that he is open to returning to Spain next summer should Chelsea fail to extend his contract.

Meanwhile, The Herald reported that Tammy Abraham has been in fine form this season and the English striker scored goal number eight in as many matches when Chelsea travelled to Southampton this on Sunday.
Tammy looped the ball over the goalkeeper which defender tried to clear off the goal-line but the ball just crossed enough for the goal.
The game may have lacked contest in terms of the score-line but the match itself was quite open as the home side created some chances of their own albeit half chances. A little more composure in front of goal may have seen Southampton having more joy in the afternoon.
Goals from Mason Mount, Ngolo Kante, and late substitute Batsuayi made it four for Chelsea. The home side attempt to muster a comeback at 0-2 when Danny Ings put one back to make it 1-2 was quickly snuffed out by a sublime Ngolo Kante’s goal to make it 1-3 at half time – Advantage, Chelsea.
