According to Dutch newspaper Voetbal International (via Inside Futbol), PSV Eindhoven are “closely watching” the status and situation of Marco van Ginkel, as he works to return to from the injury that’s kept him out for the past 18 months and scuppered at least one move back to PSV already.

Van Ginkel had been on loan at PSV during their last two Eredivisie titles, in the 2015-16 and 2017-18 seasons, and was even club captain during the latter while chipping in with 14 goals in 28 league matches.

But as much as PSV might want to rekindle that love story, their chances to do so could depend greatly on MvG’s contractual situation. His current deal runs out at the end of the season, but Chelsea could yet opt to exercise a club-option for two more years, as Marco himself revealed in a recent interview, at which point PSV could once again be priced out.

Surely, a lot will depend on the 27-year-old’s wishes as well. His career has not turned out the way anyone had intended, but hopefully if he does get back to full fitness, all parties (potentially) involved could work out some sort of a mutually beneficial arrangement, be that at Chelsea, at PSV, or somewhere else.
