Chelsea utilise the loan system better than most in world football, and all twenty-six players have been shown in an incredible map by the Daily Mail.
Having just signed Pedro from Barcelona, Jose Mourinho’s team are fighting to retain the Premier League title after a first triumph in 2014/15 since the 2009/10 season.
Mourinho likes to play tried and tested players for the most part, with Ruben Loftus Cheek and Nathan Ake the only academy graduates to come close to breaking into the first team.
Despite this, Chelsea love to buy who they feel could be Europe’s next best thing, and with money obviously not being an issue, the Blues’ squad is a mammoth one.
With the squad restrictions in place in the Premier League, the club’s fringe players have been sent all across Europe to gain experience, with many plying their trade in the likes of Italy, Germany and Turkey.
The Daily Mail have made a superb image showing us exactly who is out on their travels away from Chelsea in this spectacular image.
Understandably, Chelsea’s relationship with Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem are the temporary home to the most Chelsea players, with five of the club’s youngsters sent to the Netherlands, whilst many others are set up all around the English Football League.
Mo Salah and Juan Cuadrado, on loan at Italian heavyweights Roma and Juventus, are more than likely going to depart the club after unsuccessful spells.
Promising centre-back Andreas Christensen is getting fantastic experience with German giants Borussia Mönchengladbach, who will compete in the Champions League this season, whilst Patrick Bamford and Marco van Ginkel will look to break into Mourinho’s side once loans at Crystal Palace and Stoke expire.
This is certainly a fascinating outlook at how Chelsea conduct their business in the loan market.
