EPL: Cole Palmer explains why he moved from Manchester City to Chelsea

Chelsea’s summer signing, Cole Palmer, has explained his decision to join the Blues from Premier League champions Manchester City.

Palmer signed a long-term contract with Chelsea during the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old, who featured in the England Under 21 side’s victory over Luxembourg on Monday, said he joined Mauricio Pochettino’s side because he wanted more first-team playing opportunities.

“I’m not saying I shied away from the competition (for places at Man City) because I have never done that,” Palmer said as quoted by Metro UK while explaining his decision to move to the west London club.

“I’d been there (around the first team) for a few years and wanted more of an opportunity to play – in my position and to have more of an impact.

“It was a huge decision [moving to Chelsea]. When I left the training ground on Thursday I knew I was going to London the next day. It all just hit me, sat in the car and going to drive out. I was just thinking, “you’ve been here 15 years”.

“I don’t know any difference. I have never been on loan. I have never moved out of Manchester. The only time I have ever been outside of Manchester is on holiday or away games. Going there does feel weird, but there is no time to waste. I have got to get to it.”
