5 youngsters Chelsea might regret selling
Kevin De Bruyne came back to haunt Chelsea last weekend. Could the Blues regret selling these five promising players as well?
This weekend for Chelsea was bitter. They lost at home to Manchester City in a match which some thought was quite skewed for finishing only 1-0. Their chief tormentor was the man Mourinho sold to Wolfsburg; Kevin De Bruyne.
Chelsea's cycle of selling players is bizarre as there are many stars who could have done a job for them and more who found themselves on the shop window. Among them, we have seen Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku already tearing the League apart.
Here are some other ex-players who might come back to haunt Chelsea.
#5 Bertrand Traore
The Lyon winger was on Chelsea's books until the beginning of this season. He impressed at Ajax last year as the Dutch powerhouse reached the Europa League final with Traore scoring four goals. The attacker is agile and has the ability to change a game. He is highly rated and Lyon prised him away from Chelsea with the promise of first-team football for just £8.8 million.
Traore scored 9 goals for Ajax in the league last season playing on the left-wing and has started the season in good form for Lyon with a Man of the Match performance in the Europa League against Atalanta.
There is, however, a buy-back clause in his contract which means Chelsea could still return and not break the bank like United did for Paul Pogba or they did themselves for Nemanja Matic.
