Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu is set to have crunch talks with Jose Mourinho over his long term future at Stamford Bridge.
The Spaniard is unwilling to spend any more time on loan at other clubs and wants to be let out on a permanent basis or given assurances on a first team berth at Chelsea.
He signed from Barcelona in 2011 and has made only 15 appearances in all competitions for the Blues. The midfielder is currently on loan at Stuttgart, having spent the entirety of last season at Valencia.
However, the frequent shift from club to club is taking a massive toll on his confidence for which he wants to settle on a club and take his career forward. The player was bought for a fee of £5m by Andre-Villas Boas but has failed to have the desired impact thus far in his career.
"In June I'll speak with Chelsea to know their intentions. After two seasons on loan, the ideal would be settling into a club to get some stability. Every player needs continuity," Romeu said.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are still favourites to clinch their fifth league title following their 2-1 win over Stoke City in the weekend. Arsenal and Manchester United kept the pressure on Mourinho's men with a strong win but are unlikely to bridge the massive gap in points between the two sides.
The Portuguese manager, allayed fears over Cesc Fabregas' form in the meantime, with talk coming from some quarters over his ability to sustain a strong performance over both halves of a season.
"When some people write that Fabregas has dropped his level because the number of assists are not the same, the number of assists are probably not the same because the player that he assists doesn't score," Mourinho said.
"I think he's playing wonderfully well for us. I've never had doubts about his importance for us in the team.
"As for Matic, he was suspended, and after the suspension he was injured celebrating in the Capital One Cup final. So he cape back and he was not in the best condition.
"He was out for two or three weeks so it takes time but I always think stability is very important in a team, and it's not in April you are going to make important changes," he added.
