Are we about to lose another talented player? Given this season a bit of a write off maybe we should be brining some of these guys through?

If I was him, I would go, two forward thinking clubs, that have a recent history of producing and nurturing young talent that if good enough get into the first team, compared to us that have no recent history of bringing through youngsters, and whose career will  never reach its full potential. If he was my son I would advise him to get the hell out of here!!!

Agreed. You see how United, arsenal and, to a lesser degree but still far better than us, Liverpool develop their youth while we just let most of them rot, even after winning the youth cup and youth European league.

Still for 10.6mill is a profit on him I believe and that is, at the end of the day, what we seem to want from our youth.

These type of players have zero chance of breaking into the first team under Jose's style of management... Jose would much prefer offering a 4 yr extended Contract to the likes of a flawed Rambo or bring in a Falcao stop gap (has-been) than ever give a fearless kid, who could easily catch them up, overtake and shine a chance to break into the first team ...

So sell our most promising youngster (imo) for £10m.

 

Is that to make back the £10m+ we wasted on Falcao for one season ?

 

f**king ridiculous way to run a club if true.

 

I know, mate.  Really wish we'd given someone like Musonda or Abraham, or Solanke, etc a shot rather than the dreadful Falcao

Take a look. He suggests we sell players like Musonda, Kalas etc.. and buy them back later. No joke

And do you know why he said that? Rem has always pushed us to play the youngsters, hes most likely come to the same conclusion most of them have so it migjt be better for all parties if we paid someone to develop them for us

i actually see nothing wrong with selling them on, if it means we include a buy back clause. it is when we just sell them on without a buy back clause where it becomes an issue, especially when some of these youngsters are touted as potentially top talents.

I can read man, you dont need to explain. Thought we agreed selling them is a silly way for us to operate

Was tipped as one of Belgium's top talents when we signed him. Needs to leave ASAP if he's to fulfil that potential.

 

So, so many of our youth could be playing semi-regular to regular top division football elsewhere.

 

If I was a promising young player, I wouldn't go near Chelsea on a footballing level. Which is not a good look for the future of our club, at all.

There is so many reasons for a young player to sign for Chelsea, mainly financial and an instant boost to their reputation and recognition, which will in turn most likely lead them to better and higher paying jobs in the future but also things like level of coaching, quality of facilities improve you vastly as a player.

It also rather more surprisingly allows you to prove yourself progressively up the ladder through our loan 'conveyor' which again helps further your career rather than potentially being held at a lower level by being tied into a contract.

It also has its draw backs mainly an unstable environment and it being unlikely the player will make it for our first team but that isn't really a realistic expectation for most of these young players so on the most parts the benefits to your future in both finances and playing ability massively out way these drawbacks.

Using Musonda as an example he has been valued at over £10m whilst not having played a first team game for the club. Yet Mitrovic an out standing and still young player in the Belgium pro league and current international along with being in a generally more expensive position only went for £12m and this is a player who scored 20 league goals last season and 16 the season before and has 6 goals in Europe, yes we dont know if Musonda could have shined quite so brightly in Belgium, but it is a good basis to judge what is considered a pretty large fee. That's not to mentioned the increased wage he gets for playing for our U21s and can now command for any team wanting to buy him.

I also forgot to mention playing along side and even being tutored by some of the best players in the world. Musonda for instance gets to be tutored by Eden Hazard of all people, can't be a bad thing for the lad eh.
