Chelsea legend and former captain Gary Cahill, 33, is no longer a Chelsea player, Chelsea FC confirmed in an official statement.
GOODBYE LEGEND! WHAT A PLAYER YOU HAVE BEEN FOR US! A BIG SALUTE.
Gary Cahill leaves Stamford Bridge after a bountiful of trophies including two Premier League titles, two FA Cups, two Europa Leagues, a League Cup, and best of them all, the UEFA Champions League.
Former England centre-back joined us from Bolton back in 2012 and during his illustrious carrier with the blues, he scored 25 goals in his 291 appearances. His partnership with John Terry and Petr Cech can easily be considered as one of the best defensive partnerships Premier League has ever seen.
What’s next for the legend? Well, nothing is sure right now, however, Arsenal has come ahead as one of the surprise front runners to sign him as a free agent.
Chelsea Football Club released an official statement saying goodbye to their former captain:
Gary Cahill departs Stamford Bridge a Chelsea legend and a winner after seven-and-a-half years of exemplary service during which time he won the lot.
Club captain for the past two years, Cahill played 291 times for the Blues and scored 25 goals. He won eight major trophies, most famously the Champions League in 2012 when he battled injury to play and star in Munich.
Gary will be much missed by everyone at Chelsea. He leaves with everyone’s best wishes.
