Chelsea midfielder Marco Van GInkel wound up being the victim of a numbers crunch in August, and was forced to head out on loan ahead of the title-winning campaign due to the FA limit of 17 non-homegrown players. His spell at AC Milan got off to a slow start because of injuries, but since he has returned to full fitness, the Dutchman has been extremely impressive, starting AC Milan's last eleven matches.

Manager Filippo Inzaghi made note of the midfielder's fine work of late, and had the following to say about his hopes for the 22-year old next season:

"Unfortunately he is not our player. But he has grown a lot. He has played seven or eight games in a row and we are starting to see a great player."

"He does really well in training. Chelsea have great midfielders and he is need of playing. My will would be if possible to keep him, because he can give us a big hand."

If healthy, there's little doubt that Van Ginkel could contribute at Chelsea, even if it's just in a depth capacity. If the Blues aren't going to keep him in London, however, I'd have no issues with Marco remaining in Milan for another season.
