5 loaned players who could benefit from Chelsea's transfer ban
- 5 Chelsea loaned players who could benefit from their transfer ban.
Chelsea was rocked by news of FIFA banning the club from making transfers for two windows for breaching rules in relations to youth players. This means that Maurizio Sarri's side will only be active in the 2020 summer transfer window.
The Blues transfer ban is devastating to their worldwide fan base and their hierarchy but may be a blessing in disguise for the army of youngsters who are out on loan who could get the opportunity to impress at Stamford Bridge.
The Londoners got lucky in the January transfer window as they secured the signature of highly rated USA international Christian Pulisic from German side Borussia Dortmund for a fee reported to be around £58 million making, him the most expensive American international player of all time.
Pulisic will be linking up with his Blues team-mates in the summer and will be joined by about 40 other players who will be looking to fight for the Stamford Bridge future with the opportunity to impress and not to go out on loan again.
Eden Hazard has frequently been linked with a move to Real Madrid a move that could really rock the Blues as they'll have to wait for a whole season to replace the Belgian wizard.
Opportunity is finally here for the Chelsea youngsters to make a mark for the club. Here is a look at five players who could benefit from the harsh ban that was imposed on the Blues.
#5 Mason Mount (On loan at Derby County)
The 20-years old English midfielder is pulling the strings for promotion chasing Derby County which is managed by Blues legend and their all time leading scorer Frank Lampard.
After a fruitful loan spell in Netherlands with Vitesse, Mount is now showing his potential as a future Chelsea star learning from one of the finest midfielders of his generation-Frank Lampard. Mount managed to score 10 goals and 5 assists for the Rams in all competitions a fair contribution for a midfielder.
His calmness on the ball and ability to dictate tempo of the game from deep lying midfield position could make him a huge asset for the Blues next season. Chelsea's failure to replace Fabregas in the January transfer window present a great opportunity for the youngster.
