Brendan Rodgers wanted to keep Ben Chilwell at Leicester City, but reluctantly admitted a move to Chelsea would take him “to the next level”. Chelsea were able to prise Chilwell away from City for £50m this summer, the 23-year-old admitting that leaving the club he had played for since he was 12 proved a wrench. And now Chilwell has said City boss Rodgers believed Chelsea could advance his career, despite still trying to keep him at the King Power Stadium.

Ben Chilwell said “It was definitely a mixture of emotions to leave Leicester after being there so long, It felt like home at the time and I had a lot of friends there, not just players but the staff as well. I got on really well with the manager, I got on really well with the owner so it was difficult to leave in terms of that.”
