Leicester’s Surprise Recall by Chelsea Sparks Opportunity for Pursuit of Stefano Sensi
Enzo Maresca has conceded that Leicester City was taken by surprise when Chelsea decided to recall Cesare Casadei from his loan spell with the Championship leaders.

Initially slated for the entire campaign at Leicester, the Italian midfielder was abruptly brought back to Stamford Bridge last Friday, leaving Leicester’s squad somewhat diminished ahead of their 1-1 draw with Ipswich on Monday.

Casadei’s premature departure might create an opportunity for Maresca to pursue the long-term target Stefano Sensi from Inter Milan, but the unexpected recall of Casadei left him shocked.

Maresca commented on the situation, stating, “We were surprised Casadei went back to Chelsea.

They own him, so they can decide – we can’t do anything. We didn’t expect it, but we deal with it and see if we can do something before the transfer window closes.”

Casadei had an impactful spell at Leicester, making 25 appearances and scoring three goals this season.

He joined Chelsea in a £12.6 million move from Inter Milan two years ago but is yet to make his senior debut for Chelsea, having featured in 13 appearances for the club’s under-21 side.

Despite the unforeseen turn of events, Casadei gained valuable experience during his loan spell in the Midlands and aims to leverage those experiences to make strides into Mauricio Pochettino’s senior team.
