Chelsea are reportedly resistant to the idea of selling a couple of squad players out of fear of doing so too soon (via The Telegraph).
It always hurts for football fans to see their former players performing well at other clubs.
Chelsea supporters are certainly no stranger to that with Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne widely considered to be the two best players in the Premier League right now.
Both players left Stamford Bridge only to return to England to hurt the Blues a few years later.
Now, Chelsea are reportedly resistant to the idea of selling a couple of players out of fear that the same thing could happen to them.
The likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata are the names listed with neither really settling at Stamford Bridge since their moves last summer.
There is more than a little regret when seeing the likes of Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne flourish and certainly, that is something which could happen to talented players like Bakayoko and Morata. However, if every club refused to sell an unwanted but talented player out of fear they could flourish elsewhere then no transfers would ever get completed.
