Chelsea: Academy Players They Sold Too Early

Will Gael Kakuta be the next academy star Chelsea sell?

Since Roman Abramovich took over Chelsea, many people have lamented the fact that, since John Terry, no player has come through the academy to make the first team.

I am a big fan of our academy and keep an eye on it. I think the current crop of players show signs of being able to make it if given time, experience and trust. 

However, not all our recent academy players seem to be the beneficiaries of such gifts.

I'm going to highlight four particular cases where the Chelsea academy has produced a good talent but where the club has wrongly— in my eyes—sold the player.

As well as these four, there are other examples, including Slobodan Rajkovic (although work permit issues were a factor) and Jacopo Sala, who is doing well at Hamburg.
