Chelsea fans react as Mario Pasalic scores against Manchester City


Chelsea fans react as Mario Pasalic scores against Manchester City

The Croatian has yet to play for the club since signing in 2014.

Manchester City played out an exciting 1-1 draw with Atalanta this evening in a game which should also have been of notice to Chelsea fans. 

The Italian side fought back from 1-0 down in the game with Mario Pasalic scoring the crucial equaliser. 

Of course, Pasalic is a Chelsea player, but fans at Stamford Bridge would be forgiven for not realising. 

The Croatian international was signed in 2014 for a reported £3 million. However, like many others, he has never played for the club. Instead, he has been one out on loan ever since. 

Pasalic has spent time with Elche, Monaco, AC Milan, and Spartak Moscow before signing for Atalanta last summer. After a successful first season with the Serie A side he signed a new contract at Chelsea and was loaned back out to the Bergamo side.

He has been in fine form for Atalanta, helping them qualify for the Champions League for the first time last season and is surely a player on Frank Lampard’s radar. 

As reported by the Daily Mail in 2014, Pasalic is, in fact, a huge fan of Lampard, calling the former England international his ‘favourite player’ and he certainly shares some traits as the Chelsea legend. 

With Lampard clearly willing to give perennial loanees a chance at Stamford Bridge perhaps Pasalic can eventually find his way into the team under his management.

These Chelsea fans are certainly of the opinion that he has a chance.
