CHELSEA’S LOAN RANGERS

downloadTorres_pic2No fewer than 26 players who still belong to Chelsea Football Club have been ‘generously’ loaned to other clubs, whose needs are obviously greater than ours.

Isn’t it good to do our charitable bit for those clubs that possess less resources?!

The following squad of Chelsea loanees would most probably be equipped to form a decent Premiership team, but there simply is no room at the west London inn for the following outcasts.

Christian Atsu [Forward] from Ghana [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at Everton

Patrick Bamford [Forward] from England [contract expires in 2016] On loan at Middlesbrough until January 2015

Ryan Bertrand [Defender] from England [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at Southampton

Jamal Blackman [Goalkeeper] from England [contract expires in 2019] On loan at Middlesbrough until January 2015

Nathaniel Chalobah [Midfielder] from England [contract expires in 2018] On loan at Burnley until January 2015

Cristian Cuevas [Defender] from Chile [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at Universidad de Chile

Ulises Dávila [Midfielder] from Mexico [contract expires in 2016] On a full-season loan at CD Tenerife

Matej Delač [Goalkeeper] from Croatia [contract expires in 2016] On a full-season loan at Arles-Avignon

Islam Feruz [Forward] from Scotland [contract expires in 2015] On a full-season loan at OFI Crete

Thorgan Hazard [Midfielder] from Belgium [contract expires in 2016] On a full-season loan at Borussia Mönchengladbach

Gaël Kakuta [Midfielder] from France [contract expires in 2015] On a full-season loan at Rayo Vallecano

Tomáš Kalas [Defender] from Czech Republic [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at 1.FC Köln

Marko Marin [Midfielder] from Germany [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at Fiorentina

Josh McEachran [Midfielder] from England [contract expires in 2016] On a full-season loan at Vitesse Arnhem

Victor Moses [Forward] from Nigeria [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at Stoke City

Kenneth Omeruo [Defender] from Nigeria [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at Middlesbrough

Mario Pašalić [Midfielder] from Croatia [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at Elche

Stipe Perica‎ [Forward] from Croatia [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at NAC Breda

Lucas Piazón [Midfielder] from Brazil [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at Eintracht Frankfurt

Joao Rodriguez [Forward] from Colombia [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at SC Bastia

Oriol Romeu [Midfielder] from Spain [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at VfB Stuttgart

John Swift [Midfielder] from England [contract expires in 2015] On a full-season loan at Rotherham United

Fernando Torres [Forward] from Spain [contract expires in 2016] On a two-year loan at AC Milan

Bertrand Traoré [Midfielder] from Burkina Faso [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at Vitesse Arnhem

Marco van Ginkel [Midfielder] from Netherlands [contract expires in 2018] On a full-season loan at AC Milan

Wallace [Defender] from Brazil [contract expires in 2017] On a full-season loan at Vitesse Arnhem

Of these ‘temporary’ exports, I would be extremely surprised if Kakuta, Marin, Moses, or Torres ever play for Chelsea again. I reckon that Bamford and Bertrand’s chances are slim, while the same applies to McEachran. Regarding the latter, there are simply too many people ahead of him in the pecking order, namely Matic, Mikel, Chalobah, and Van Ginkel. I’m not sure that Piazon will get upgraded to the first team. As for Romeu, many of us have been impressed by him, but one gets the impression that Mourinho feels less favourably disposed.

Elsewhere, Kalas and Van Ginkel may well return to the first team, while Chalobah’s chances have been enhanced by now being loaned out to a Premiership team. Similarly, Atsu stands a good chance of being kept at the Bridge if he passes his audition at Everton. Traore is still very young, so time is on his side, a fact that helps most of these young loanees. It will be interesting to see if Thorgan Hazard can sustain his progress, this time in the Bundesliga. Time will tell. It always does!
