Although Chelsea are set to be crowned as Premier League champions this weekend, there have been rumors circling in the national press that manager Carlo Ancelotti is ready to disperse much of the aging squad to make room next season for the club's impressive youth players.
Despite yet another vintage season for the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, and Edwin Van Der Saar, it may also be time for Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to shift the balance of power from the club's elder statesmen to younger, fresher legs.
Over at Arsenal, Aaron Ramsey's promising season was ended by a gut-wrenching, bone-crunching tackle by Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross. Yet another season in which his team has failed to win a trophy may make Arsene Wenger question the wisdom of offering the likes of veterans Sol Campbell and Mikael Silvestre another contract.
Danny Rose's wonder-goal on his Tottenham debut against Wenger's men instantly gave him cult status among Spurs' fans.

In this slide-show, I take a look at a team full of players whose moons are waxing and whose stars could be shining bright come this time next year.
