It was a horrible move career-wise.

Chelseaís academy is a money making machine.

Not from what Iíve read.

They do very well buying young players and loaning them out, but theyíve brought nothing through from grass roots all the way to first team regulars and theyíve ploughed millions in with that aim.

That’s not the aim

Edit: that might change now the purse strings have been pulled, but for the last 5-10 years the aim has been buy top talent, loan it and sell it.

Apparently itís been Abramovich wish for a long time.

 I'd love him here but I suspect many others would too. Early bird? At least let him know we'd love to get him.

I think he may have meant what Abramovich aspires to have and youíre talking about their business plan?

I can see another Moses situation,  he'll go out on loan again,  sign a new deal with Chelsea and go back when he's ready. They've got too much egg on their face with lukaku,  de bruyne and Salah to let him go

But if itís his wish, why wouldnít their plan reflect that over the last few years.

I think heís chatting wham with no sources, and if abra has said that then itís largely empty pandering.

They recruit incredible amounts of talent, loan them out for fees + wages then sell them. Best academy business in England.

They do this because they can never match united in terms of commercial revenue, so they have adopted a different model.

Is that chart for academy players though or just players like Lukaku, De Bruyne, Salah etc who were bought young and sold on but they were never academy players? Genuine question like as it's not that clear but I think you're probably getting young players bought and put into the first team squad mixed up with young academy players who've come through the ranks, of which there's not many.

I remember an article about 5-6 years ago about Chelsea's academy since Abramovich took over, it had cost something like £65m to set up and fund yet not one player (at that point) had managed to establish themselves in the Premier League squad.

Was John Terry part of their academy? I donít remember if he was pre or post Abram.
