'Time well spent' – Chelsea star Ross Barkley relaxes in the sun as he spends international break on the beach

CHELSEA’S Ross Barkley has decided to spend some time in the sun with the majority of his team-mates busy on international duty.

The 28-year-old has barely featured for Thomas Tuchel’s side this campaign and has been limited to only 12 appearances.


The last of those outings came back in the FA Cup third round victory over Chesterfield on January 8.

But with several of his pals away with their respective countries, Tuchel granted the rest of the squad some time off in order to recharge their batteries.

The former Everton man has appeared for England 33 times.

However, he has not been capped since a Euro qualifying victory over Bulgaria way back in October 2019.

And that has allowed him to make the most of the break but jetting off to warmer climates to bask in the sunshine.

Barkley shared some snaps of his holiday on his Instagram page.

One showed him lounging on a huge bed in front of the ocean with another one of him checking his phone in front of the waves.

And he captioned them with: “Time well spent…”

Barkley has failed to establish himself as a Chelsea regular since joining from boyhood club Everton in 2018.

He was even sent to Aston Villa on loan last season but that didn't lead to a permanent move.

The attacker still has just over 12 months remaining on his £110,000-a-week deal with the Blues.

Meanwhile, several Chelsea stars turned up the Heat during their international break by watching some NBA action in Miami.

And the quartet of Blues heroes were gifted with customised jerseys during their visit to Florida.

Romelu Lukaku, Hakim Ziyech, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Trevoh Chalobah were stateside to see the Brooklyn Nets secure a 110-95 win over Miami Heat at the FTX Arena in Florida.

They posed for photos with their names and Chelsea squad numbers on the back of the iconic black vests – as well as getting snaps with NBA trophies.
