Incredibly the Blues have 27 players out on-loan.
The introduction of the Financial Fair Play rule by UEFA has seen big spending clubs try and work out different ways to build world-class sides.
Premier League big boys Chelsea have opted to buy up talent when they are young and then develop them with loan spells – with no fewer than 27 Blues players currently being loaned out.
Here are the two starting XIs that the west Londoners could field currently from their stars away on temporary deals.
First starting XI:
Among this side there are six fully fledged internationals, with Thibaut Courtois and Romelu Lukaku established members of the impressive Belgium national team and having 33 caps between them.
Meanwhile Victor Moses won the African Cup of Nations last year with Nigeria, Christian Atsu has 10 caps for Ghana and Marko Marin has made 16 appearances for the German national side.
Other players of particular note are new £12.5m man Kurt Zouma, who at 19-years-old has been touted as the next captain of France by Didier Deschamps and Nathaniel Chalobah, who was voted young English player of the year.
Second starting XI:
It’s bewildering enough that the club has enough players out on-loan to field two complete XIs, but although this side doesn’t contain as many internationals stars, there are still some talented youngsters present.
Gael Kakuta is currently with Lazio and was once billed as the best player of his generation, although at 22-years-old has failed to fully fulfill that potential.
Left-back Patrick Van Aanholt is a Netherlands international, whilst Thorgan Hazard (younger brother of Eden) has been impressing in Belgium with SV Zulte-Waregem.
See who are the top 10 best Chelsea players of all time.
