Jose Mourinho has revealed that he has made a decision on THREE of our promising youngsters for the season ahead and it's another season away from Stamford Bridge for Nathanial Chalobah, Lucas Piazon and Josh McEachran.
Whether or not you agree or disagree with his decisions is one thing but we have to consider the players themselves. Chalobah came on leaps and bounds at Watford and I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up back there under Gianfranco Zola for his second season."We are thinking of letting Nathaniel go on loan for a last season. That is our intention and he knows. We have discussed that with him. He is a very, very good player. I like him very much and am very impressed. For sure, he is a Chelsea player. We will see whether or not it is a Premier League club but he would have to play every weekend for the last year of his loan period. He could be in our squad already but we think one more season will help and then he will come back for 2014-15. It will be his last one out on loan. He is very, very good.Josh will also go on loan, Lucas Piazón too. Wallace will go on loan – he has no work permit and will go on loan in Europe, not in South America, to make the transfer easier for him. Islam Feruz will stay in our under-21s."
As for Josh McEachran? It's difficult for him and for Chelsea to break through here isn't it. It seems as though he has spent the last three years out on loan and you have to question whether or not Chelsea see his future as being here?
It's interesting to hear Mourinho talk at length about Chalobah and his future but hardly anything of McEachran!.
The good news is that Tomas Kalas is being given the chance to be in and around the first team squad for the coming season.
Good luck to all four players for the coming season. Let's hope the club works out the right move for those going out on loan, especially for Lucas Piazon as he needs to be playing in his favoured position week in, week out."It was the first day of training when Mr Mourinho came to me and asked me if I would accept the challenge to be a first-team player and give it everything and, of course, I accepted. I hope I am ready but now I have to prove myself.I have no doubts. I played 63 games in Holland and another season maybe would be worse than better. I learned a lot of technical and tactical skills playing in the Eredivisie, where everybody plays football from the goalkeeper to the central defender. To play 10 or 20 games for Chelsea would be brilliant."
