Chelsea should use on-loan players to raise funds for summer transfer window

Chelsea are notorious for their extensive loan system, but with the new FIFA loan rule being in place next season, it might be a good idea to offload some of the players on loan to raise funds for the upcoming summer transfer window.

Chelsea currently have 28 players on loan all across the world (Chelsea official site). Some of them are over the age of 22 and would be affected by FIFA’s new loan rule.

The rule will restrict clubs to send a maximum of eight players aged 22 or over on loan in 2020/21 season, with the number being reduced to six the following season.

Tiemoue Bakayoko (on loan at AS Monaco), Baba Rahman (Real Mallorca), Victor Moses (Inter Milan), Davide Zappacosta (AS Roma), Danny Drinkwater (Aston Villa), Kenedy (Getafe), Lucas Piazon (Rio Ave), Charly Musonda Jr (Vitesse) are all over 22 years old and it is hard to imagine any of them being included in Frank Lampard’s plans next season.

In addition to this list, Chelsea are likely to make some players currently in the squad available on the market in the summer. Emerson Palmieri, Marcos Alonso and Kepa Arrizabalaga were all linked to moves away from Stamford Bridge.
