Sky Sports: Cahill has allegedly turned down a move to Juventus
- As many as three European top clubs were keen on signing Chelsea's center-back
- Cahill, however, preferred to stay on and fight for the starting spot
Sky Sports believe that Gary Cahill won't be leaving Chelsea in January, despite the intense interest from the likes of Fulham, AS Monaco and Juventus. The Englishman is understood to be willing to fight for the starting spot, having made just seven appearances for Sarri's club.
He has recently opened up on how it feels to stay out of action this season: "Sometimes you have to make those decisions to keep going and progressing. First of all the team's doing well which is the most important thing. Having been a big part of things for six years, seven years and played a huge part, not just a squad player, I'm definitely finding it difficult this year to deal with that situation."
Chelsea will allow Gary Cahill to leave the club on loan in January. Cahill's contract will expire at the end of the season, so leaving on loan will effectively bring an end to the defender's six-year career at Stamford Bridge.— Hala Transfer News (@HalaTransfers) November 14, 2018

Juve were reportedly eyeing Chelsea's centre-back as a replacement for Mehdi Benatia who joined Qatari club Al Duhail, while AS Monaco are fighting a losing fight to avoid relegation this season.
Cahill's current market value is £9m according to Transfermarkt.
