After all of our summer purchases, Yossi Benayoun would seem surplus to the requirements at Chelsea. He featured in the first pre-season game (I think he was on the pitch anyway), but was not involved in the second. With Chelsea seemingly looking to counter quickly this season, Yossi would seem to be a bit of a poor fit anyway. A move may well be in the works, as Yossi had the following to share with us this morning:
Have a nice day everyone,I promise to update soon as few things are going on at the moment..#myfuture— Yossi Benayoun (@YossiBenayoun15) July 24, 2012
There's not much in the way of a hint of where he might be going, but it certainly seems like he and the club are talking at this point about a move away. He's always used twitter as a way of telling fans what's going on in the past, so the fact that he's taken to tweeting about his future this morning would make me believe something is definitely in the works. It's something to keep an eye on, and I'm sure Yossi will be the first to let us know when his future is settled. Hopefully this season that future doesn't include a loan to a Premier League rival.
