The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate to see a few more young players make it at Stamford Bridge.
Their academy is full of incredible talent, but far too often, they fall short of making it in the first team. Sure, over the last few years, Chelsea have had success with the likes of Andreas Christensen and Thibaut Courtois, but there have been far more misses than there have been hits.
Sure, sometimes that is Chelsea’s fault. Poor loan spells and a failure to offer players a chance are just two of those reasons, but sometimes it’s also out of the club’s hands.
There are some players that are simply destined not to make it at Stamford Bridge. Sometimes their minds are elsewhere, and often it’s not their fault at all, but Chelsea can’t always take the blame when a player is unsuccessful it making the transition into the Blues’ first team.
With that said, these 2 Chelsea youngsters surely won’t make it at Stamford Bridge…
A few years ago, Lewis Baker was the jewel in Chelsea’s academy crown.
Named their Young Player of the Year, he looked destined to make it at Stamford Bridge.
However, since then, it hasn’t really happened for him. He had a decent spell over in the Netherlands with Vitesse, but he’s been unable to adapt back in England – and his spell with Middlesbrough has been an unmitigated failure.
At 23-years-old, the chances of him making it at Chelsea now are slim to none.
Another player that has dazzled at moments, Charly Musonda career has hit a bit of a low point this season.
He looked ready to make a change and dazzle over at Celtic, but it just hasn’t happened for him under Brendan Rodgers.
He’s clearly a talented player, but given that he’s struggling to make an impact in Scotland, it seems unlikely that he’ll be turning out at Stamford Bridge anytime soon.
The Belgian is clearly talented, but he isn’t quite talented enough.
