Cahill has not made Sarri’s squad in Chelsea’s first two Premier League games this season. It appears he’ll struggle for regular playing time this season.
It is believed that Sarri has asked Gary Cahill to exercise patience and that he’s still important at Chelsea.
Center-back options abound for Sarri at Chelsea with the likes of Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz being preferred ahead of Christensen and Cahill.
Sarri recently spoke on Cahill’s chances at Chelsea as per ESPN FC’s Liam Twomey. He said:
“At this moment, for a defender, it’s more difficult to play in my team after only 20 days of training. It’s easier I think for offensive players, but for defensive players, it’s more difficult. At this moment he needs to have much more defensive training”
However, it remains to be seen if Cahill will be interested in leaving Chelsea for Galatasaray, although they’ll offer Champions League football.
