CM – Oriol Romeu
There are still those that think this 22-year-old could make it in West London having enjoyed a spell with Valencia last term and now having headed to Stuttgart to try and improve even further.
CM – Marco van Ginkel
It was a difficult first year in English football for this Netherlands international as after an £8m switch from Vitesse the midfielder suffered a cruciate ligament injury and van Ginkel is now looking to rebuild his career at AC Milan.
RM – Christian Atsu
There has been plenty of business conducted between Everton and the West Londoners this summer as along with signing Samuel Eto’o and Romelu Lukaku permanently, they have also taken this highly rated winger on-loan.
CAM – Thorgan Hazard
The younger brother of Blues ace Eden and a player who won Player of the Year in Belgium last campaign for his performances with Zulte Waregem and is now looking to impress further with Borussia Monchengladbach.
LM – Lucas Piazon
Another highly rated youngster now and a Brazilian who is expected to be destined for great things, but still can’t get a place under Mourinho and has been sent on-loan to Eintracht Frankfurt as a result.
