And he hasn’t been impressed with how Chelsea have treated him.
Piazon told Maisfutebol: ‘After a certain point the connection is no longer beneficial for both parties.
‘At first, I felt really good. I went through the U-23s, got to the first team and, even in the first loans, I felt Chelsea had expectations and interest in me.
‘I believed I could come back and have opportunities at any time.
‘Later, as time passed, I became just another business for them.
‘They send me out on loan with the expectation of selling me and making some money with me. I think that’s more or less what they think.’
