Every great forest was once just a bunch of budding saplings.

Chelsea has more than enough young saplings in its organization right now. So many that it has to perennially loan out two or three or four of them.

Some possible future Blues talents who have already gone out on loan heading into this coming English Premier League season include Kevin De Bruyne, who will sharpen his teeth with Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga, and Romelu Lukaku, who will play in the EPL with West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan.

Another guy who may soon be loaned out again is Josh McEachran, who has reportedly received interest from Bolton and Blackburn as well as Middlesbrough. With so many new midfielders joining the roster this summer, finding time for the talented 19-year-old may be difficult for Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo.

So who are the best of the really young players who may have a chance to shine in west London in the next five years and when Petr Čech, John Terry, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard are gone?

Not counting David Luiz (age 25), Ramires (25) and Juan Mata (24)—who pretty much established themselves last year and may be entering that infinite stage of stardom for the European champions—here are five young guys who I think really have a chance to make a name for themselves at Stamford Bridge in the next decade.
